Regression analysis showed that variables such as self-esteem and successful identity were positive predictors of Art students attitude to life. These two variables showed a significant relationship between self-esteem and positive attitude to life with reliability of 95 percent.

Thus, policy makers and planners should consider these factors and it is essential educational planners and practitioners pay attention to this important matter, and professionals should try to enhance mental health among university students.
