Good mental health is an integral part of general human health. Good emotional well-being is a condition for the happiness and well-being of the individual and society.
Stress is a universal problem, but in Lithuania the stress rates are especially high – every second employee in our country suffers from stress at work.
Stress in the work environment can lead to severe emotional experiences and damage to mental and physical health. Assessing the stress indicators in Lithuania, it can be stated that employers in Lithuania rarely take this initiative, and even if they apply preventive measures, they are not so effective as to reduce the extent of stress at work in the country.

Health projects and programs for the retirement age group are mostly aimed at improving physical health. However, the mental health of older people requires the same
attention as physical health, as “old age is characterized by many stressors that can impair mental health, such as declining functional capacity and social isolation, low employment in older people, poorer social ties, poorer social adaptation and so on.
