Abstract

Environments of talents schools are quite different from ordinary schools, therefore this study compared the mental health and self esteem of adolescents, in talented and ordinary students of Jiroft. In this descriptive and analytical study mental health and self esteem of 131 gifted high school students with 262 ordinary high school students compared. Data were gathered by: Mental health questionnaire (GHQ-28) and Coopersmith self esteem inventory. Data was analyzed by using SPSS v.18 (t test and pearson correlation coefficient). The results revealed that 56/4% of the ordinary school students and 45/5% of gifted students acquired scores above the cutoff in mental health questionnaire. Gifted students' self-esteem was more favorable than students in ordinary schools (p =0), However, significant differences was not found between mental health scores in gifted and others (p =0/25), Also significant positive relationship between the mental health scores and self esteem scores of the students in both schools were seen (p =0/000). Since it seems the high self-esteem and less depression in gifted students is related to feel more successful in these students, therefore recommended that usual schools create opportunities for students to experience a sense of success in the students.
