2019-09-27 06:30:41 | BioPortfolio


The present study was conducted to measure the mental well-being amongst dental students by using Warwick-Edinburg Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS) and investigate factors affecting well-being among dental students.


The survey schedule was planned to be independent of the students' assessment period and the questionnaire was administered to the students when they were attending a lecture together. After the lecture, a researcher explained to the students the purpose of this survey and assured them of confidentiality. Participation in this study was also voluntary, and all participants remained anonymous. The questionnaire was given to all participants after explaining the purpose of the study. The questionnaire included demographic details (age, gender, year of study), social background (parents' education levels, family income, first choice for admission, living accommodation) and lifestyle behaviors (smoking status, presence of regular sport activity and hobby). In addition, Warwick-Edinburg Mental Well-Being Scale was applied to the participants of this study.
