If a healthy and contemporary society is to be created, physical and mental, emotional and social aspects of health and education services as a whole should be given much attention. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the frequency of anxiety and depression levels in normal family children with 15-18 age group and children from fragmented families living in orphanages. The population of the research consists from 160 people consisting of 40 female and 40 male students who live in the 15-18 age group in an orphanage in Ankara. Based on the findings of the study, it is possible to reach the following conclusions. Trait anxiety scores of female students who were both living in the orphanges and also with their families were found to be higher than the scores of male students who were both living in the orphanges and also with their families. In other words, the girl students who were both living in the orphanges and also with their families are more anxious than the male students. The depression scores of female students who were both living in the orphanges and also with their families are higher than the depression scores of the male students who were both living in the orphanges and also with their families. The girl students who were both living in the orphanges and also with their families are depressed more than the boys who were both living in the orphanges and also with their families. In terms of depression, the girl students who who were both living in the orphanges families were more depressed than the girl students who who were both living with their families. It is observed that the number of most of female students staying in the orphanages decreased due to many reasons. In the same way, there is a decrease in the number of male students in the orphanages who were in the last grades. This can be explained by the separation from the school and the residence, and the shifts in jobs that generate new earnings.
