This study could conclude that while self-esteem and workplace stress were found to have a significant but inverse association with mental health, work motivation had a direct and significant association with mental health while job satisfaction had no association with the mental health of CGs of CwDs. Age, workplace stress, and self-esteem were factors that could have an inverse effect on the manifestation of mental health challenges among the CGs of CwDs. With regards to age, younger individuals who worked as caregivers were not necessarily satisfied with such a job. They could have had their self-esteem deflated because of issues around unemployment and redundancy, and thus needed to work as CGs in order to survive. Job satisfaction remained a plausible factor that fostered positive mental well-being among the CGs of CwDs.

    Abstract A healthy psychological state is the premise for children to carry out various activities. Previous surveys have shown that children with special needs are affected by their own obstacles and are more prone to psychological problems such as sensitivity, low self-esteem, and impulsiveness.

Mental health education programs are an efficient form of maintaining children’s mental health. However, in the field of special education, the number of mental health education courses developed according to the physical and mental characteristics and developmental needs of special children is… More >
