Aims Teachers often encounter work-related challenges that can compromise their mental health. This article extends previous studies by applying a dual model approach to evaluate the relationship between the meaningfulness of work and teachers’ mental health. Mental health is defined as a high level of psychological well-being and a  low level of psychological distress.
Method The qualitative study involved a survey completed by 261 elementary school teachers in East Java, Indonesia, and five teacher interviews. Data was collected through documentation, interviews, and a mental health scale while data analysis was performed through descriptive and thematic analysis.
Findings The result shows that the high problems experienced by teachers in performing their duties and the inability of teachers to interpret their behavior have resulted in low levels of mental health.
Conclusion  The result contributes to a better understanding of teacher challenges that can impact overall mental health and provide useful strategies for improving teaching conditions
