153 students in the upper secondary grades were chosen at random from five different schools in the state of Telangana to conduct an analysis of the ways in which the home environment influenced different elements of teenagers' psychological well-being. When the data from the psychological well-being scale and the home environment inventory were analysed, they showed a strong association between their respective subscales. Multiple regression analyses revealed that negative HE mostly influenced teenagers' levels of "sociability" and "interpersonal relationships." The "satisfaction", "sociability," and "interpersonal interaction" elements of psychological well-being were significantly predicted by discipline-specific characteristics. In contrast, all five facets of psychological well-being showed a substantial prediction potential for Positive HE factors. Demographic factors have no discernible impact on psychological health. These discoveries concerning the delicate environmental routes into the psychological well-being of teenagers will be useful for counsellors, parents, teachers, and other caregivers.
