Spiritual intelligence (SI) can be defined as the ability to behave with compassion and wisdom while maintaining inner and outer peace regardless of the circumstances. Mental health (MH), in simple words, includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. In this paper, the investigator has tried to find the impact of SI on pre-service teachers’ MH. The survey method and correlation design of research were used in the study. A simple random sampling method was used to collect the data from 100 pre-service teachers of Delhi/NCR. An integrated SI scale was used to find out the SI level of the pre-service teachers. A self-made questionnaire and focused group discussion were used to determine the respondents’ MH in the study. The Pearson correlation coefficient was used to determine the relationship between pre-service teachers’ SI and MH. The results showed a high level of a positive correlation between SI and MH. The respondents also mentioned stress, anxiety, and fear related to family and work-related issues.
