Mental disorders are among the most annoying for some employees in large organizations. Many
believe that in order to provide good service in large organizations, it needs to meet minimum
standards and pay attention to the types of stress and other mental disorders that result from those
centers. Undoubtedly, health care organizations are no exception, but because of the complexity of
the structure and the extent of inter-sectoral relationships, the need for this is becoming increasingly
important. The purpose of this study was to investigate the general health status of employees with
an approach to the psychological aspects. Human resources as an unmatched asset in health care
centers have formed one of the most important management concerns in it. Therefore, it is important
to examine the mental health status of the staff in the health care centers in view of the increasing
pressures and variety of missions of those centers. Finally, this study has been presented effective
strategies to improve the mental health of employees and subsequently to improve the quality of
health. This is a cross-sectional descriptive study in which all staff working in a health service center
was surveyed. The mental health status of the staff of the center was measured by the GHQ-28
questionnaire. Demographic variables, including age, sex, education, field of study, place of
employment, were also examined. The study data showed that 93.8% of the total population were
in desirable condition. Considering that more than 6% of employees lack the desired state of mental
health, and physicians and official forces are more prone to disorder than other employees, so
paying more attention to appropriate requirements, including necessary measures, meeting facilities
and paying attention to the welfare and cultural needs of the staff, should be used to maintain the
mental health of staff
