Abstract:In this study, the effects of this intervention on mental health and stress, and the way these two constructs influence each other were assessed. 17 students participated in this study and their stress and mental health level were assessed with the PSS and the MHC-SF before and after the intervention. There was one test-condition. Participants with neurological impairment or clinical relevant conditions were excluded. The sub scale emotional well-being, part of the MHC-SF, was the only scale that showed a significant change of .94 points (p=.024). For the sub scales- psychological well-being, social well-being and the PSS, no significant change could be shown. Furthermore, a correlation between the PSS and the MHC-SF was indicated. There was no correlation in the change scores of the PSS and the MHC-SF what may be due to the missing effect of the intervention in general. With the use of an evaluation form, exams in the time of the intervention were negatively tested for a confounding effect. It was also indicated that most people liked the intervention even though they did not experience a direct effect.
