Objectives The purpose of this study was to survey the mental and social health status in Iranian workplaces and recommend promoting approaches.
Methods This research has a qualitative-dominant mixed-methods design. The study data were collected through review of documents and resources, interviews, and group discussions. The results were classified in three separate areas of the current situation, future direction, and requirements of implementation.
