The present paper discussed on emotional maturity and self concept at higher secondary students. The study attempts to analyze the various aspects of emotional maturity and self concept among higher secondary students. The end of the twentieth century and beginning of the twenty first century have seen on unprecedented upsurge in activities revolving around the teenage adolescence students. It is the dire need of the hour that as teenage adolescence students we should have proper emotional development to rightly use our human emotions. So our human mind has something vital to do with human emotions and we should give a self concept to control our emotions with the mind! But our emotions need to be understood, taught, trained and controlled by the mind! Emotional maturity moves beyond "intelligence" to a higher state of consciousness, guided by what one senses, feels and intuits, and one's heart. Emotional maturity and self concept is a tool for promoting students mental health and personality.
