Profile picture of dr. I. (Iris) Arends


Contributing to better working lives is what I strive for. I have over 10 years of research experience within the field of Work & Mental Health and done policy analyses in this area for the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). My focus is on developing holistic interventions and policies for mental health at work. This includes examining the roles of multiple stakeholders at work (e.g. the worker him/herself, supervisors, HR, colleagues) at home (e.g. partner, children) and in the broader context (e.g. GPs, psychologists, health care and social security systems). Furthermore, I adopt a life course perspective that takes into account how early life experiences affect later life work and mental health.
