Barcelona [Spain], March 5 (ANI): The findings of a new study conducted by researchers from the Center for Research in Occupational Health suggests that a precarious, unstable initiation by young people towards working life is associated with poorer mental health in the future.
The research published in the journal BMJ Open was authored by Amaya Ayala-Garcia, Laura Serra, and Monica Ubalde-Lopez and was conducted by the Center for Research in Occupational Health (CISAL, a joint group of UPF and the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute) in Barcelona, Spain.
Since the 1990s, Spain has been among the European countries with the lowest employment rates, which are accentuated in the young active population. Moreover, in 2017, Spain had the highest proportion of temporary contracts and one of the highest rates of precariousness. Previous studies show that unemployment, temporary employment, and job insecurity are related to a higher incidence of mental disorders.
This study evaluates the relationship between the various possible pathways at the start of working life with future absenteeism due to mental disorders in a sample of salaried workers. The cohort study is based on employees aged between 18 and 28 years, residents in Catalonia, who presented at least one episode of absenteeism as a result of mental disorders between 2012 and 2014.
“It is a novel approach that evaluates how transitions between types of contracts, situations of employment/unemployment, and periods without social security coverage can affect the evolution of mental health in the younger working population entering the labor market. It also investigates the possible effect of the public or private ownership of the companies in which the subjects have begun their working life”, says Monica Ubalde-Lopez, study coordinator, currently a researcher at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), a center driven by the “la Caixa” Foundation.
Amaya Ayala-Garcia, the first author of the article, says that “to evaluate job stability, we apply a statistical technique that has allowed us to take an initial photo of the previous 10 years of working life, in which we identified four different patterns of participation in the labor market”. These four patterns are a stable, permanent job, increasing stability (a decrease in the number of transitions between temporary contracts and lack of social security coverage towards permanent contracts), unstable employment with varying types of contracts, and finally, a fourth pattern characterized by later entry to the job market. “To approach the severity of mental disorders, we measured the cumulative days of absenteeism due to mental disorders over three years. Thus, we detected a more or less favorable evolution over time”, she adds.
The authors of the article noted that people with a more stable working life, for example increasing job stability, tended to have a more favorable future of accumulation of days absent due to mental disorders (fewer days accumulated) than people who had a more unstable working life. They also noted that having worked in large companies at the start of their working life was associated with better mental health later on.
“Job insecurity among young people can be seen in rates of temporary and unemployment, which has also greatly increased with covid. Our results show that a precarious labor market may be shaping the future mental health of the young working population. Therefore, future public health policies should address this problem in order to prevent long-term absenteeism”, they conclude. (ANI)

KATRINA AND VICKY WEDDING IS TURNING OUT TO BE A NIGHTMARE FOR GUESTS
MUMBAI: The big Bollywood wedding of the year – Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif wedding is turning out to be a never seen or heard before affair. It is true that there has been no confirmation from the stars themselves that they are a couple or that they are so much in love that they have decided to spend the rest of their lives together. While fans wait for VicKat to come out in the open, it may not happen until they do get married on December 9. In fact, they are laying down so many conditions for their guests that it is turning out to be a nightmare.
An industry insider who is on the guest list has revealed that every day there is a new condition or a rule that is sent their way by the team coordinating Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal’s wedding. “I don’t know if it is their team that is hyperventilating about it all of it is the couple themselves who are getting a little too private with their wedding. Each new day brings a brand new condition that makes you fit to attend the wedding. It is a wedding for God’s sake, not a State secret that needs so much guarding,” rues the guests.
The guest further revealed that some of the conditions are downright offensive and insulting. “If you cannot trust your guests enough, and what them to abide by this and that, why even invite them?,” the guest questions. Sources say that mobile phones are not allowed beyond a point at the venue and guests are barred from taking any pictures and videos at the main venue. They are not allowed to post anything on social media without prior approval from VicKat’s teams.
PRIYANKA NARRATES HOW AMID ‘TOUGH’ SCHEDULES SHE AND NICK MADE THEIR MARRIAGE WORK
WASHINGTON: Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas during a recent podcast opened up about having a long-distance relationship with husband Nick Jonas, amid their busy work schedules. According to People magazine, the ‘Matrix Resurrections’ actor said, “This year has been really, really tough. It was really, really tough to be away from home for an entire year, especially at a time when you can’t travel to see your family.”
“Just the uncertainty of my mom and my brother being in India, my husband being in America while I was in the U.K. It just was so much uncertainty and that, to me, was terrifying of not being able to just get on a flight and travel, just in case something went wrong or something happened. But thankfully, you know, everyone was okay,” she continued.
The pair got engaged in July 2018 just two months after publicizing their relationship. They wed later that year in two separate ceremonies. Priyanka said being alone and away from her husband has been very challenging. But they have been making long-distance work the best way they could. She said, “We didn’t have a dramatic separation but because he was in and out, we had to be really careful. He had to quarantine, I had to quarantine whenever we saw each other at that time. And that’s usually not conducive to a production schedule because you don’t really have much time. You have, like, two days off.”

I’m really glad that with Chhorii, I could put out a responsible message that is the need of the hour. It’s not just any another horror film, it’s a film with a perspective — one that brings to light a social evil, provoking thoughts that inspire us all to take responsibility in a manner that we move towards bringing about a change.”
Opening about her Chhorii being her first solo lead film, Nushrratt says, “It was equally daunting and enriching experience to single-handedly headline such a film. It will always remain one of the most difficult films I’ve done so far.”
Nushraatt shines bright in every frame, giving audiences thrills and chills as you can’t help but empathize with her fear and helplessness as she finds herself pitted against evil.
Unanimously hailed as her career’s best performance, it’s a new era for the actress who will next be seen in content-driven films like Janhit Mein Jaari, which she headlines, Ram Setu, Hurdang and many others in the pipeline.

JAYA BACHCHAN TO PLAY A HALWAI IN KARAN JOHAR’S ROCKY AUR RANI KI PREM KAHANI
NEW DELHI: For the first time in her career, the versatile Jaya Bachchan will be attempting comedy in Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions’ Ranveer Singh – Alia Bhatt starrer Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
Jaya plays Ranveer Singh’s grandmother and her role has distinct shades of comedy in it. Says a source very close to the project, “Jayaji plays a halwai (mithai maker). She plays a loud earthy outspoken woman who loves a good laugh, at her own expense or at the expense of others. It is her most fun-filled role to date. She loves Karan Johar for giving her a role that didn’t require her to be serious all the time. She is enjoying just letting down her hair.”
Sources from the location in Delhi say that the fun Jayaji is having on camera is spilling over to her real life. “She has never been such a fun person. She keeps joking on the sets that Karan Johar couldn’t get Johnny Lever’s dates, so he signed Jayaji instead,” informs a source.
As for the film, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani is being directed by Karan Johar. Produced under the Dharma Productions banner, the film stars Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, and Dharmendra. Announced in July 2021, the film is being readied for release on February 10, 2023.
