Abstract EN

This study aimed to identify the level of mental health components of internet users, and to detect the differences in the components of mental health due to demographic variables.

The sample comprised 317 (111 males and 206 females) of internet users.

A demographic data checklist and mental health scale (prepared by the researcher) was used after verifying its psychometric characteristics.

The results of the statistical analysis revealed a high level of mental health among internet users.

There were also statistically significant differences between the average scores of internet users in the components of mental health (total degree and dimensions) due to the variable of gender, number of hours of internet use, number of social networking sites used and age group, as well as the purpose of using the internet.
