Objective: In Iranian society, women as half of the population play an important role in employment and social development. Hence, addressing the issue of women’s working and its relationship with their health status is inevitable. On the other hand, evidence suggests that in addition to medical interventions, health depends on socioeconomic conditions like job classifications. Method: It’s a cross-sectional study on 160 women working in welfare centers in Tehran. Participants were recruited using a multistage cluster method. To measure the variables, checklist of personal data with demographic variables and General Health Questionnaire-28 (GHQ-28) were used. Findings: Between mental health and job classification, there was a significant correlation (p<0.005). Comparing job classifications on a one-to-one basis showed a significant difference in mental health between manager and expert women, so that, managers had less mental health than experts. Conclusion: Managers and policy makers of organizations, as well as health planners, should pay more attention to job which seems to be a social determinant of women’s mental health.
