AbstractMental health among adolescents has become a rising public health concern. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was labeled a pandemic, and steps to combat it included movement restrictions and social interactions. This study aimed to use descriptive analysis to investigate and estimate the prevalence of depression and psychological well-being, particularly from an Indian perspective. During COVID-19, India has seen a significant impact on psychological well-being among adolescents. For this research, researchers employed snowball sampling techniques. All questions were answered by a total of 400 adolescent participants for this study. This study used the following three sets of research instruments for data collection: a personal data sheet and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI II), and Ryff’s Scales of Psychological Well-being(RSPW). Data is analyzed using descriptive statistics. The Pearson correlation coefficient revealed a very substantial negative correlation of .773 between depression and psychological health, implying that low PWB has an impact on depression. This study’s findings strongly suggested that a successful adolescent intervention program be devised and executed.
