Mental health of the tribal students in Bangladesh
The present research aimed to explore the mental health status of the tribal students in Bangladesh especially in Rajshahi University. Toward this end, mental health of 180 (tribal student) respondents was measured by administering General Health Questionnaire (Goldberg, 1972). Mental health status of 180 general (non-tribal) students was also measured as a control group for the comparison. The result revealed that the mental health of the tribal students was significantly (P<0.01) poor than general (non-tribal) students. The result of the study also revealed that mental health of the tribal male students was significantly (P<0.05) better than that of the tribal female students. The findings also indicated that mental health among the different tribal groups did not differed significantly (P>0.01).
