The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship of self differentiation, self esteem and mental health in adolescents. METHODS: Data were collected from 829 adolescents and analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe's test, Pearson correlation coefficients and multiple regression with the SPSS 14.0 program. RESULTS: Mental health differed according to grade, level of father's and mother's education. Self differentiation and self esteem had a significant negative correlation with mental health. Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed emotional cutoff, family projection, cognitive . emotional function, and family regression in self differentiation, self esteem, level of mother's education explained 24.4% of the total variance in mental health. CONCLUSION: The findings indicate that self differentiation and self esteem have an influence on mental health. We need to develop and provide nursing intervention programs to prevent and manage adolescent's mental health problems and include the family in these programs.
