Abstract
The article discusses the phenomena of a psychological health through such integrative concepts as "the psychological well-being" and "the “I” boundaries". Theoretical analysis shows the oppositional nature of the studied concepts. The “I” boundaries provide contacts with the outside world, while the psychological well-being is a resource state, which allows to preserve stability of the environment and a self-stability. The aim of the study is to identify statistically significant relationships between a well-being and psychological boundaries. Control and regulation of the “I” boundaries have backward correlation with psychological well-being, which can be explained as follows: the boundaries of I in its phenomenological sense suggests the presence of another man with his desires and needs, which may be diametrically opposite; psychological well-being, on the other hand, suggests a lack of strict rules and needs to follow the requirements. The “I” boundaries protection methods ( with adult’s help and the use of speech) and psychological well-being have positive correlation. The practical meaning of the study is to confirm the thesis that a child needs private time and space, which would be accepted and protected by adults. Thus, in order to maintain mental health in childhood it is presupposed to have a balance between the relationships with environment and at the same time, the possibility of privacy.

Keywords: psychological health, psychological well-being, the “I” boundaries, control, regulation, methods of the “I” boundaries” protection
