This study aims to find the correlation between religiosity, resilience, and mental health. We conducted a survey to 115 samples of public high school students at Depok, Indonesia (Mage=16.23, Male=31) to prove our hypothesis that high resilience and high religiosity positively correlate with positive mental health. We used Indonesian Version MHI-38 (Veit & Ware, 1983) (α=0.658), Psychological Capital Resilience dimension (Luthans, 2002) (α=0.636), and adapted scale for religiosity from National Study of Youth and Religion (Pearce, 2016) (α=0.676). The result is that mental health well-being significantly correlated with resilience and religiosity (p<0.05), mental health personality distress negatively correlated with resilience (p<0.5) and negatively correlated with religiosity (p<0.5). Resilience and religiosity were highly correlated (p<0.001). We proposed a model for relationship between resilience, the five dimension of religiosity and mental health. This lead us to further discussion and research about the relationship between mental health, resilience, and religiosity at school.
