Özet

This research was planned to investigate psychiatric symptoms in a normal adolescent population. Four hundred and thirty-four students were selected randomly from three schools of different socioeconomic status. Symptom Check List 90-R was used to evaluate the psychiatric symptoms. The results were analyzed considering the effects of age, gender and socioeconomic status. It was concluded that being female, 15-16 years of age and having a lower socioeconomic status are risk factors for developing psychiatric symptoms.
