Scale for data assessment was defined based on global severity index (GSI) (no symptom<1, 1 to1.99 minor, 2 to 2.99 moderate and severe≥3). Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and X2 test.

  Results: The frequency of psychological disorders in girls and boys were 44.6% (n=146) and 31.5% (n=93), respectively (p=0.0001). In minor and moderate levels, hostility with 61.2% (n=381) and psychoticism with 13.5% (n=84) had the most and the least frequency, respectively. Also, no severe psychological disorders were observed in any groups of the students.
