Abstract: The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between Personal effectiveness and mental health of workers of the nursing sector. To fulfill this aim a correlational design was used in present study to investigate the role of personal effectiveness in mental health of employees of nursing sectors.For the current study Personal Effectiveness scale by Udai Pareek (2001) was used to measure Personal effectiveness of the employees and for assessing mental health (Psychological Distress Manifestation Scale (PDMS) by Masse, Poulin, Dassa, Lambert, Belair and Battaglini, 1998) was used. A purposive sample of 100 nurses was taken irrespective of genders. The results of the correlational analysis show a significant negative correlation between dimension of personal effectiveness openness to feedback, perceptiveness, and self-disclosure, and PDMS dimensions (e.g., irritability, anxiety/ depression, social disengagement and self-depreciation). At workplace workers lacking in personal effectiveness can suffer from mental health complaints. Findings of the study indicate that self disclosure as well as openness to feedback (dimensions of personal effectiveness) are negatively correlated with self-depreciation and social disengagement dimensions of PDMS. While on the other hand perceptiveness another dimension of personal effectiveness is negatively correlated with social disengagement and overall mental health of the employees.
