Author(s): Dr. Sharmila Gunpal

Abstract: There is a direct association between psychology and psychological well-being for any individual. The predictors of PWB are still not widely known by Indian university students. This study looked into the relationship between PWB with various determining aspects, i.e. stress, resilience, self-efficacy, mindfulness including social support, among students in Haryana and Punjab. Although it is believed that stress negatively affects PWB, positive effects are also suggested by self-efficacy, resilience, and social support. Purposive sampling was applied for the selection of total of 966 Haryana and 696 Punjab university students, descriptive methodology was adopted. For this research different scales were applied i.e Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale, Multi-dimensional of Perceived Social Support, General Self-Efficacy, Perceived Stress Scale, Mindfulness Awareness and Psychological Well-being Scale along with a socio-economic factors. To achieve the objectives of the study descriptive statistics and correlation analysis along with SEM were used. Across two samples, mindfulness significantly affected both PWB components, including autonomy and growth as well as the cognitive triad. While perceived control and perceived stress were the two factors that strongly predicting the autonomy, growth, and social support in the Punjab, resilience and perceived stress were the two factors that most strongly predicted these outcomes in the Haryana group. These findings offer detailed information for improving psychosocial therapies and supporting PWB to boost resilience, mindfulness, and perceived stress regulation, including social support.
