This paper presented the Turkish version of the Nature Relatedness (NP-6) Scale, examined its psychometric properties. Besides, the relationships between nature relatedness, depression, anxiety, and stress were examined. Construct validity and concurrent validity were conducted in validity studies. Natural Relatedness (NR-21) Scale was used for concurrent validity. In reliability analysis, the instruments internal consistency and re-test reliability were studied. Results of explanatory factor analyses demonstrated that 6 items yielded one-factor. Results of confirmatory factor analyses for one-dimensional model showed that perfect fit index values. Factor loadings ranged from .42 to .74. In the concurrent validity, significant positive relationship was found between NR-21 Scale and NR-6 Scale. Cronbach alpha internal consistency coefficient was found as .89 for all items. Moreover, test-retest reliability coefficient was obtained as .88 and corrected item-total correlations ranged from .63 to .81. In second study, NRS-6 and DASS-42 was used for data gathering. According to findings, nature relatedness has negative relationship with depression, anxiety and stress. Findings of study were commentated with respect to previous related studies.
