The present research examined middle-aged West Bengal marital adjustment, mental health, and reactions to frustration. Among middle-aged female school teachers, psychosocial stress, conflict between work and family life, depression, anxiety, complaints that are somatic and social dysfunction were all present. In order to create any structured interventions for preserving and enhancing working middle-aged women's quality of life, it is necessary to analyze their mental health state. Another study examines how social and cultural factors determine mental health diagnosis and treatment. Through an online survey, 101 participants in Jalpaiguri were chosen using the snowball sampling technique. Depression, anxiety, and stress were assessed using the DASS-21. Women in the teaching profession between the ages of 45 and 65 were shown to have significant levels of anxiety, despair, and tension. Maintaining a balance between family responsibilities and the need to implement new technologies and innovative teaching causes women to experience anxiety, depression, and stress.
