The paper deals with the development and standardization of Mental Health Scale for undergraduate students. At the initial stage, the scale consisted of 140 items. Then the number of items was reduced to 85 after extensive scrutiny by the subject experts. Subsequently item analysis was carried out. Finally, a set of 60 items was retained for the final scale. The final version of the Mental Health Scale consists of positive and negative items. The test-retest reliability was found to be 0.74. The concurrent validity of the scale was assured by evaluation from subject experts.
