To analyze data, SPSS.13 software and descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation) and Pearsonâ��s correlative coefficient, stepwise regression analysis, independent t test, and one-way analysis of variance were used. Results: According to finding, correlation of mindfulness with psychosis (r=-0.17), with extroversion (r=0.09), with neurosis (r=-0.25) was attained (P<0.01). The correlation of mindfulness with general health elements in body symptoms (r=-0.22), anxiety and insomnia (r=-0.14), defect in social function (r=-0.26) and deep depression (r=-0.24) was attained (P<0.01). Defect in social function, neurosis and psychosis determine 13 of mindfulness variance. Boys enjoy higher psychological health and lower mindfulness than girls (P<0.01).
