The objective of this research was not only to investigate the relationship among mental health (MH), job performance (JP) and psychological capital (PC) but also to find out the mediating role of PC between the relationship of MH and JP. Data were collected from three hundred and eighty eight (N = 388) teachers including lecturers, assistant professor, associate professor and professor of public universities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Panjab and Balochestan provinces of Pakistan. Barron and Kenny’s (1986) principles for testing the mediating effect were followed. The results of correlation revealed that both dimensions of metal health (anxiety and depression) had a negative relationship with JP and PC. However, PC has a significant positive relationship with JP. The results of structure equation modeling revealed that PC partially mediated the relationship between MH and JP.
