||This cross-sectional study was carried out to investigate the effect of gender role and the psychosocial work environment on the psychological well-being of staff at two hospitals in Spain. A total of 313 workers were surveyed on their psychological well-being by means of a self- administered questionnaire. Findings are discussed. Subjects with a very good marital relationship had less risk of presenting bad mental health (odds ratio (OR) 0.43), and limitation in the social function (OR 0.43) and emotional role (OR 0.35). Those who dedicated more than 30h per week to domestic chores had a higher risk of limitation of social function (OR 2.48). Those exposed to high psychological demands presented a higher probability of poor mental health (OR 1.77). Finally, workers exposed to low job social support had a higher risk of poor mental health (OR 1.86), low vitality (OR 2.21) and limitation in the social function (OR 1.88).
