The mental health challenges of college students are of growing global concern. As part of an effort to combat the negative effects of poor mental health is an understanding of the features that contribute to its improvement or worsening. This study examines the influence of body image, self-esteem, and resilience on levels of stress, anxiety, and depression in college seniors in Thailand. Two hundred and fifty college seniors in Thailand completed a survey during their classes at the university. Results showed that perceived body image, levels of self-esteem, and levels of resilience are significant predictors of stress and depression in these students. Additionally, results showed that body image and levels of self-esteem are significant predictors of anxiety. The findings from this study suggest that body image, self-esteem, and resilience are important factors to consider when examining the psychological wellbeing of college students in Thailand.
