||A conceptual framework for the study of work and mental health
||Apr.-June 1994, Vol.8, No.2, p.84-97. Illus. 45 ref.
||The key features which influence mental health both in jobs and in unemployment are discussed and are incorporated into a general framework for the study of work, unemployment and mental health. Three principal axes of affective well-being are identified, and it is suggested that nine environmental features are of primary importance. The impact of these features on mental health is viewed as analogous to the influence of vitamins on physical health. This 'vitamin model' is extended to permit examination of individual variables, and some empirical evidence is presented. The model provides a broad conceptual framework to guide more specific thinking.
