Introduction: The aim of this study was to increase general health based on teaching social-emotional skills and stress management in high school students.
Methods: The present study was a quasi-experimental with a pretest, posttest design with a control group and a two-month follow-up period. The statistical population of the study included high school students in Tehran's 15th district of education in the academic year of 1998-99 (15 students in the experimental group of emotional-social skills training, 15 students in stress management training and 15 students in the control group). They received a separate form in 7 sessions of 90 minutes. The questionnaires used in this study included the academic procrastination questionnaire (Riding, 2011) and general health questionnaire 28 (GHQ- (Goldberg, 1979)). Repeated measurements and Bephrone follow-up post hoc test were analyzed.
Results: The results showed that emotional-social skills training and stress management have a significant effect on increasing the mental health of high school students (p <0.001). In addition, the results of the follow-up test showed that there was a significant difference between the effectiveness of these two interventions (p <0.001) and stress management training had a greater effect on mental health of the students than emotional-social skills training.
Conclusion: The findings of this study indicated that the training of emotional-social skills and stress management can be used as an effective training to increase mental health.
