It was found that there is no significant difference between groups in mean scores of perceived stress in the first measurement (p=.250). In the second and third measurements, perceived stress scores (the second measurement=25.16±6.37, the third measurement=18.23±6.80) was significantly lower the case group adolescents than the control group adolescents (second measurement=31.20±2.14, the third measurement=25.63±2.97).
