Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics methods, Pearson correlation and independent t-test, and multiple regression analysis. The results of Pearson correlation test showed that there was significant negative relationship between creativity with mental health (P=0/000, r=-0/283). In the other word, with increasing mental health (decreasing the score in the mental health questionnaire), the creativity also increased. However, there was no a significant relationship between creativity with academic achievement (P=0/741, r=0/025) and mental health and academic achievement (P=0/141, r=-0/150). According to independent t-test results, there was no significant difference between male and female students’ average scores in creativity and mental health, whereas there was a significant difference between male and female students’ in academic achievement.
