The purpose of the study was to find out the Impact of Health Related Physical Fitness Variables on Mental Health of Tribal School Boys. To achieve this purpose of the study 600 tribal school boys were selected at random from Rajanna Sircilla District in Telangana State. Their age ranged between 13 to 15 years. In this study, Mental Health assessed with health related physical fitness variables. The present study consists of one dependent variable namely Mental Health and five independent variables (Health related Physical Fitness Variables) such as muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, cardio-respiratory endurance and body composition (BMI), The Trier Personality inventory was devised by Peter Becker (1989) and it was used to assess mental health of the subjects. Assessment of health related physical fitness variables Muscular Strength (Push-Ups Test), Muscular Endurance (Sit-ups Test), Flexibility (Sit and Reach Test), Cardio Respiratory Endurance (12 Min run or walk test) Body composition (BMI). Data were collected and analyzed by using descriptive statistic and the inter- relationship among health related physical fitness variables with mental health were computed by using pearson’s product-moment correlation co-efficient. The computation of stepwise multiple liner regression also used in this study. The result revealed that an Inter-relationship exists significantly between the health related physical fitness variables on mental health in tribal school boys of Rajanna Siricilla District. The Result revealed that cardio respiratory endurance muscular endurance and body composition (BMI) become the common characteristic which can predict the mental health in tribal school boys.
