Unprecedented flood ravaged about eighty percent of Bayelsa State in October, 2012 rendering many homeless. This study sought to investigate the relationship between adjustment and psychological well-being of school-going adolescent flood victims. Quantitative and qualitative research methods were combined to triangulate the study to gain a better insight of the study. Two hundred school-going adolescent flood victims were purposively sampled from various camps that were made available by the State Government. Their ages ranged between 12 and 20. Chi-square was used to analyse the quantitative data while content analysis and verbatim report was used to corroborate the quantitative analysis. The finding revealed that adjustment and psychological well-being have a significant relationship. Based on the finding, the public was encouraged to sustain the tempo of encouragement to the flood victims for sustainable adjustment and psychological well-being.
