In Nigeria, there is a high prevalence of mental health problems among employees. A study by the World Health Organization (WHO) found that nearly one in four Nigerian workers suffers from a mental health disorder. This is largely due to the high levels of stress and anxiety that are common in the workplace.

Mental health disorders are a leading cause of absenteeism and productivity loss in the workplace. They can also lead to an increased risk of accidents and injuries.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to mental health problems in the workplace. There are about 43% of Nigerian workers have to face extremely demanding workloads. This can lead to feelings of overwhelm and anxiety.
