Abstract

Wellbeing has become a favorite topic in research across scientific disciplines. A dominant force driving focus on the association with physical and mental health and its role in economic development and socio-economic issues. This study aimed to test the optimism as the mediator variable between family and mental wellbeing among students. Subjects were 758 secondary school students in East Java, Indonesia (406 boys and 352 girls). Data obtained through the Brief Family Relationship Scale, Life Orientation Test-Revised, Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale. Data were analyzed by mediated regression analysis. The results showed that family functioning is a predictor of both optimism and wellbeing. The role of family functioning is decreasing even close to zero when regressing with wellbeing is done by including optimism. Thus it was concluded that optimism is a mediator variable from the relationship of family functioning with well-being on students.
