A total of 415 adults were included in the study and personal information form, Life Satisfaction Scale, Coping with Stress Scale, and Attitude Scale for Seeking Psychological Help-Short Form were presented to the participants via the "Google Forms" platform. Before these forms were presented, an information form was given to the participants. The research data set was analyzed using the SPSS 25.0 package program and it was seen that the data set showed a normal distribution. For this reason, parametric tests such as disconnected samples t-test, one-way ANOVA and Pearson correlation analysis were applied in the analysis of the data. According to the results of the correlation analysis, positive and significant relationships were found between life satisfaction and the total score of coping with stress and its sub-dimensions, attitude towards seeking psychological help. While there were positive relationships between the attitude of seeking psychological help and the total score of coping with stress, positive evaluation, seeking support and problem solving sub-dimensions, there was no significant relationship between the attitude of seeking psychological help and the logical analysis sub-dimension. As a result of the regression analysis, it was concluded that the attitude towards seeking psychological help was significantly predicted by the style of coping with stress and this predictive effect was 10%. On the other hand, positive evaluation and life satisfaction variables did not have a significant predictive effect on the attitude towards seeking psychological help. The research results were discussed within the conceptual and theoretical framework, compared with other findings in the literature, and various suggestions were made to researchers and clinicians.
