Work-family conflict as a mediator of the work stress - mental health relationship
The relationship between work stressors and mental health outcomes has been demonstrated in a whole range of work stress models and studies. But less has been written about factors outside the work setting that might predict or moderate the relationship between work stressors and strain. In this exploratory study, we suggest a model linking work stressors and "time-based" work-family conflict (TWFC) with mental health, with the intention to contribute to the refinement of the traditional work stress-model. In a quantitative study of 115 Spanish managers, we found that TWFC mediates the relationship between some work stressors and mental health. This implies that mental health problems will increase if work stress spills over to the family and consequently causes work-family conflict. Future managerial stress research should further test TWFC as an intervening variable linking work stressors and mental health.
