For data collecting, researcher-made questionnaire, Snyder’s self-monitoring; Arnet’s sensation-seeking, Goldberg’s mental health and Family Analysis Device (FAD) are used. In data analysis, Pierson’s correlation and multi-variable regression with enter way by using SPSS software are applied. The results indicate that there is negative and meaningful relationship between family function and sensation seeking, mental disorder and their factors (p<0.05), but there is a positive relationship between family function and self monitoring (p<0.05). The results of multi-variable regression analysis, by using entrance method shows that the rate of prediction of family function by using variables like self monitoring, sensation seeking and mental health is meaningful but the rate of prediction of self-monitoring is more than others.
