- Based on the notion of positive psychology, the interrelationships among peer-rated mental health, social acceptance and irrational beliefs were examined using Korean youth. We predicted that adolescents who were rated by their peers to be relatively more mentally healthy, compared to those who were rated to be less mentally healthy, would (a) receive higher social acceptance from peers and (b) report fewer irrational beliefs. 476 adolescents (252 boys and 224 girls; M age=16.7 yr., SD=.46), all recruited from a single high school in an upper middle-class area in Seoul, Korea, rated each others' mental health in five areas of mental health, i.e., concern for others, contentment with life, creativity and industry, good interpersonal relationships and ability to cope with stressful situations and social acceptance and responded to a questionnaire measuring irrational beliefs. Analysis showed that those adolescents who were rated by their peers to be more mentally healthy received higher social acceptance from those peers than those rated as less mentally healthy; however, this effect size was small. Implications of the study are discussed.
