We examined the relationship between life satisfaction (LS) and mental health (MH) in a sample of 397 Chinese adults. Participants completed the Chinese version of the Satisfaction with Life Scale and the Chinese General Health Questionnaire. Results revealed that those who perceived themselves to have good financial status reported higher LS and sense of adequacy, and lower anxiety than did those who did not. In addition, LS was significantly correlated with MH, and sense of adequacy was the strongest psychological predictor of LS. These findings suggest that LS and MH are directly associated with perceived financial status, and MH may mediate or moderate the association between PFS and LS.
