Abstract: An attempt was made to study the mental health of adolescents in relation to moral judgement, intelligence and personality. The sample of this study comprised 820 adolescents drawn from senior secondary government managed Punjabi medium schools of Punjab by selecting 10 schools each from three selected districts. Tools used for data collection were Mental Health Battery (MHB) by Singh and Gupta (1978), General Mental Ability Test by Jalota (1982), Moral Judgement Test (in Punjabi) was constructed and standardized by the investigator herself and Eysenck s Personality Questionnaire by H.J. Eysenck s (1975). Correlation analysis, Fisher s and#8215;Z Score, Three Way ANOVA and t ratio were applied. The results indicated that there is positive and significant relationship of moral judgement, intelligence and extroversion dimension of personality with mental health of adolescents for total sample but mental health has no significant relationship with psychoticism and neuroticism dimensions of personality.There is a positive and significant relationship of mental health of adolescents with moral judgement, intelligence and extroversion dimension of personality for the groups of adolescents having high mental health but mental health has no significant relationship with psychoticism and neuroticism dimensions of personality for the groups of adolescents having high mental health. There is no significant relationship of mental health with moral judgement, intelligence and different dimensions of personality for the groups of adolescents having low mental health.The relationship of mental health with moral judgement, intelligence and extroversion dimension of personality is stronger for the groups of adolescents having high mental health but there is no variation in the relationship of mental health with psychoticism and neuroticism dimensions of personality for the groups of adolescents having high and low mental health.
