Abstract

Mental well-being refers to an individual’s capacity to comprehend their own suitability and effectively manage life’s stresses, while decision-making competency (DMC) entails the ability to assume responsibility for making and fulfilling commitments through timely and appropriate decision-making.  A simple decision making is combination of individual’s knowledge, experience and how they deal with the various problems in life. Moreover, mental well-being includes cognitive, emotional and behavioral response towards personal life of an individual. The correlation between mental well-being and DMC build resilience in young adults.

Keywords: Mental well-being, decision-making competency, behavioral response, young adults, knowledge
