Abstract:

Young adults experienced more stress than others as they are striving to excel in his/her field whether it is at home or at work place. Stress has become a universal phenomenon in this modern era. Hence, an attempt was made to study the psychological well-being of working young adults in government sector from Hyderabad city. Exploratory research design was used for the study.60 young adults (including 30 females and 30 males) who were working in government sector and consented to participate in the age group of 20-40 years were randomly selected. Psychological well-being scale by Sisodia and Chaudhary was used to examine the PWB of young adults. Frequencies, percentages, means, standard deviations and independent t- test were used to analyze the collected data. Results revealed that majority of the sample (83%) had moderate psychological well-being level, followed by low PWB i.e.12 percent and few of them i.e. 5 percent had high PWB. The mean score of females is 122.2 which is much lesser than male i.e. 152.5. Results also stated that there is significant difference between gender and psychological well-being. This shows that women were facing more psychological problems than male because of their over-burdened life and stressful work and family life.
