This study is an applied and correlational research based on structural equation modeling. The statistical population included the primary school teachers of Mirjaveh out of whom 215 teachers were selected by stratified random sampling method. Three questionnaires including spiritual leadership, spiritual health and organizational support were used for data collection. For data analysis the Pearson correlation coefficient was used. In this study, all the ethical considerations have been observed and no conflict of interest was reported by the authors.


The mean scored for spiritual health, spiritual leadership and organizational support was 215.22±18.65, 122.03±17.92 and 49.71±11.56, respectively. There was a significant correlation between spiritual leadership and spiritual health (r=0.228, P<0.01), spiritual leadership and organizational support (r=0.257, P<0.01), and organizational support and spiritual health (r=0.241, P<0.01). The direct effect of spiritual leadership on spiritual health (β=0.41, t=4.72), direct effect of spiritual leadership on organizational support (β=0.29, t=3.02) and direct effect of organizational support on spiritual health (β=0.23, t=2.68) was found to be significant. The indirect effect of spiritual leadership on spiritual health was also significant with the mediating role of organizational support (β=0.0667).
