This issue of the Journal of Indian Health Psychology has nine research articles with traditional empirical or qualitative and critically oriented approaches that focus on psychosocial aspects of health and illness. In the first article, Akbar Husain and Shabnam Qayoom proposed a model of health based on Islamic perspective, ‘SEHAT’, which suggests that higher level of wellness and illness prevention can be achieved through these five factors i.e. spirituality, eating and drinking, healthy environment, avoidance of infectious diseases; and abstention from harmful substances and therapeutic interventions. Mini Mehra and Bhupinder Singh, in the next article have take up an issue that is increasingly attracting the attention of academicians and researchers, focusing on internet usage and well-being among adolescents. Indu Bala and Mandeep Sharma empirically explored the relationship between emotional intelligence and psychological well-being among college students.
