The intent of this study was to look at personal resources, defined in this study as sense of coherence (SOC), as one possible factor explaining equalities and differences in mental health between individuals with and without experience of parental divorce, when traumatic experiences, other than a possibly traumatic parental divorce, were also considered. The results showed a significant connection between a strong SOC-29 and good mental health (Symptom Checklist-90/Global Severity Index), but no significant connection between SOC-29 and Life Incidence of Traumatic Events. Personal resources measured as strong sense of coherence seem to be important in retaining good mental health and for the capacity to deal with life incidences.
