Adolescence is a vital transition phase in everyone’s life. It is during this phase of development, adolescents strive to develop one’s own unique characteristic features, that which has a greater impact on their general physical and psychosocial wellbeing. In order to assess the stress among adolescents, a descriptive study was carried out in a selected school, perinthalmanna, Kerala. 76 adolescents between 13-15 years were included in the study after obtaining permission from the school authorities and informed consent from the parents. The collected data was analyzed according to the objectives of the study.
