||The purpose of this study was to assess the state of mental health among workers in the Paris region and to demonstrate a possible relationship with the actual work experience. The survey covered a group of 3,279 employees of small- and medium-sized undertakings using a standard questionnaire covering demographic characteristics and the perception of working conditions. Mental health evaluation was carried out using the Langner and Amiel total health test. The mental health judgement relative to actual work experiences was generally satisfactory, particularly in the higher socio-professional categories. A relationship was also noted between mental health, on one hand, and level of autonomy, intra-company communications, and environmental factors, on the other.
