This study evaluates the relationship between life satisfaction and depression, anxiety and stress. These associations have not been jointly investigated in the Brazilian context. A sample of 371 university students (64% women) participated, each responding to the Life Satisfaction Scale (LSV) and the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale. Correlations indicated moderate association of life satisfaction with depression (r = -0.41), and small associations with anxiety (r = -0.22) and stress (r = -0.25). A multiple regression model was used to assess the predictive role of depression, anxiety, and stress on life satisfaction. This model predicted 17% of the total variance, and only depression (ß = -0.51) was statistically significant. These results produce validity evidence for the LSV and are explored in terms of possible clinical implications for the development of strategies to increase happiness.
