Abstract— Mental disorders account for a large proportion of the disease burden in young people in all societies. Detecting these disorders and individual prone to these disorders at earlier ages can facilitate better treatment. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional observational study was carried out on 400 students as per Modified Mini Screen (MMS) scale to assess the psycho-wellbeing of students. General information regarding socio-demographic data and study pattern was also recorded. These data collected were analyzed and inferred with Chi-square test and ANOVA test of significance. Results: Out of total 400 students, 43 (10.75%) were in red zone of psycho-wellness and 152 (38%) were in orange zone whereas only 205 (51.25%) were in green. Although Psycho-wellness was not found to be associated with age, sex , religion and cast of family but significantly poor mental health was found in children of nuclear family, less educated mothers, working mothers and middle socio economic status of the family. Mental health was significantly poor in children who were single child, who had single parent and or any chronic diseased person in the family Conclusions: About half of students were completely mentally healthy otherwise every alternate student was found to have poor mental health that needs further evaluation for psycho-morbidity. Poor mental health was found in children of middle level educated mothers, working mothers, middle socio economic status of the family and in children who were single child, who had single parent and or any chronic diseased person in the family
