Abstract

The study investigated the impact of domestic migration stress on mental, social and emotional well-being of the adults residing in the families of the military personnel. Moderating role of mental wellbeing between migration stress and its two outcomes including social and emotional wellbeing was investigated also. Research participants were adults residing in the families of the military personnel (N = 300), approached through purposive sampling to administer Domestic Migration Stress Questionnaire, Warwick Edinburg Mental Well-being Scale-Short Form, Social Well-being Scale and Emotional Well-being Scale. Moderation analysis indicates that for negative effect of domestic migration stress on social and emotional wellbeing, the moderator variable mental wellbeing played the role of antagonistic as the domestic migration stress enhanced both social and emotional wellbeing instead of reducing them. Thus, the negative effect of domestic migration stress on social and emotional wellbeing turned into positive due to the inclusion of mental wellbeing in adults.
