Abstract

Factors like poor nutrition, diseases, injuries and severe pain in body parts etc, can contribute to mental health issues and psychological distress. Low birth weight, miscarriage and prematurity, widespread problems in undernourished populations can be exacerbated by heavy and stressful work. Poor shelter, sanitation, inadequate water supply and rubbish disposal facilities create serious health risks to the poor. In this study the psychological health factors were analyses on the conditions of physical health, reproductive health, sexual and physical abuse and psycho-health which were a frequent emotional consequence of tension, panic and anxiety, as well as depression of the women labourers living in Pune railway station area.
