Abstract

Objective: Although the teaching profession is stressful and despite the known impact of teachers' mental health on students during teaching, prospective teachers' mental health is neglected in training and selection. However, knowledge about teacher candidates' mental health during their training process and about their help-seeking behavior can contribute to improving their mental health. Therefore, this study aims at determining the mental state of teacher candidates and elucidating help-seeking behaviors that may be useful for overcoming mental problems.
