Özet

Background: Self-esteem is essential for all individuals especially for adolescents to obtain social, emotional and mental health. High self esteem is linked to increased academic performance, improved health and productive behaviour and increased social adjustment. Conversly low self esteem is linked to poor academic achievment,loneliness, smoking, substance abuse, depression, suicide and pregnancy. Programs that provide enhancement of self-esteem during adolescent year may be important for preventing poor academic performance, poor health behaviours and subsequent problems of deviant social behaviours.
