This study presents a proposal for a Mental Health Program, as part of ergonomic management within an organization. The program has three stages of intervention. The primary consists of Assessments, both in Ergonomic Analyzes and in Occupational Medical Examinations, of aspects related to mental health. From the data found in this first phase, it is possible to preventively identify possible psychosocial factors. As a result, we can instruct to participate in the secondary intervention stage, called “Mental Health Tips”, which consists of actions of orientation and awareness of aspects focused on mental or emotional aspects. Finally, there is the tertiary intervention, if worrying psychosocial factors are identified, a multidisciplinary committee will act as support. The program is contributing to the emotional well-being of its employees, who are able to deal with emotions better, focus their attention on the present moment and report feeling much happier and lighter.
