Mental health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being, whereby the individual is capable of leading an economically and socially productive life. A Singapore study examined the level of positive mental health (PMH), identified the socio-demographic correlates of the PMH domains, and sought to establish if employment status moderates the relationship between major depressive disorder (MDD) and PMH. Healthcare professionals should support the employment needs of those who report lifetime MDD, and provide care for mental well-being in a holistic manner. Reducing barriers to employment or creating employment opportunities for this group needs to be addressed at a societal level.
