From the first moments of life, family can be the greatest source of support for children as a center of love and safety. Accordingly,the well-being of a person is inextricably linked to parental well-being because human well-being is not merely a health disease but also a combination of physical, mental and social situations which is evaluated together with social, emotional and psychological dimensions of a person and his family. The aim of this study was to examine the mediating role of family sense of coherence on the relationship between social resources and mental health continuum. The participants of the study were 192 university students (109 females and 83 males; aged between 18 to 31), who completed a questionnaire package that includes the Family Sense of Coherence Scale, Mental Health Continuum-Short Form and Social Resources Subscale of the Scale of Resilience for Adults. Hierarchical regression analyses indicated that family sense of coherence fully mediated the relationship between social resources and mental health continuum.
