Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia in 2013 published data of the number of hypertensive patients in Indonesia which reached 25.8% of the total population. It means that about 100 million people aged 18 years and over are in a hypertensive condition. Hypertension is a non-spreading disease that causes a person to experience an imbalance of life control and management that results in other severe diseases such as kidney failure, coronary heart disease, and the human nervous system damage (Bozorgmanesh et al, 2014). One factor that causes a person susceptible to this disease is psychological symptoms. Psychological factors are sometimes not easily known and anticipated so that people’s awareness is needed to anticipate them. Community-based intervention is very effective in changing subject’s attitude, knowledge, and behavior to be better (Torlasco et al., 2017). This intervention program is conducted primarily when it aims to provide information on the psychological symptoms developed by a person affected by hypertension. Based on a preliminary study of 50 random subjects in the Psychology Faculty of UGM, the results show that there is a tendency of students being affected by hypertension due to psychological factors. This is derived from the small scores on the scale of The Health-Promoting Lifestyle (HPLP) and The Management Strategic Scale (MSS). Psychological factors that should be concerned are stress management, self-regulation and emotion, and also personality attributes.
