Acting Director General of Social Development Office (SDO) Dr Wafa Al-Aradi affirmed that 30-40 percent of the population in Kuwait suffers from work-related pressures. She indicated that marital problems, at a range of 60-70 percent, top the list of the most common cases of the people who visit the office.

Dr Al-Aradi said this at a gathering on the sidelines of a ceremony titled “Mental Health in Workplaces” organized by SDO at Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel under the patronage of State Minister for Cabinet Affairs and Acting Minister of Information Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah on the occasion of World Mental Health Day on Monday, October 16. She explained that childhood problems take the second spot particularly violence and abuse towards children.

Problems faced by adolescents such as anxiety and sexual identity disorders come in the third place. About 80 percent of the mental health problems in workplaces are related to personal patterns and lifestyles as well as lack of social communication skills. In the presence of the Assistant Undersecretary supervising the departments affiliated to State Ministry for Cabinet Affairs Abdullah Al-Hajri, Dr Al-Aradi said mental health in workplaces is considered as an important matter for various state institutions and ministries.

She stressed that most institutions acknowledge the effect of mental health on work, indicating that 50 percent of diseases that continue for a long time are connected to mental health. Dr Al-Aradi indicated that a study conducted at Warwick University in Britain revealed that happy people who enjoy good mental health are more productive than those with low mental health.
