Abstract

Health risk-taking behaviour has been associated with health damaging behaviours such as violence, bullying, alcohol use, smoking, substance abuse, risky sexual behaviours etc. Present study aims to assess the presence of risk/protective behaviour and the role of resilience and health risk-taking behaviour among adolescents. The sample of the study comprised of 532 adolescents (238 Males and 294 Females) in the age range of 15 to 18 years enrolled in 11thand 12thgrade (Humanities stream). Data was drawn randomly from different private and public schools of Patiala, Punjab, India. Questionnaires comprising Youth risk behaviour surveillance system (YRBSS) and Resiliency scales for children and adolescent (RSCA) were used to collect the related information. Results revealed that drugs (14%), concussions (13%), violence (12%), and bullying (12%) were found to be present as health damaging behaviour, while breakfast (37%) and safety (20%) were existing as health protective behaviour. This study found low resilience (mastery and relatedness) correlated with an increased risk of suicide ideation, smoking, alcohol, drugs and sexual intercourse. Furthermore, emotional reactivity was found to be positively correlated with violence, bullying, suicide planning, suicide attempt and sexual intercourse.
