    Yangjuan Ye, Haijun Tang*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.7, pp. 873-879, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.028107

    Abstract An increasing number of studies have suggested that increased physical activity is associated with less mental illness. However, the relationship between exercise and psychotic experiences (PEs) is still unknown. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between exercise and PEs in college students in the United States. Data from the Health Mind Survey (2020–2021 round) were analyzed. Respondents included 137,916 college students who were asked about exercise and PEs (lifetime psychotic experiences, delusions, and hallucinations). A multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to investigate the relationship between exercise and PEs while controlling for demographic characteristics. There was… More >

    Ting Wang1, Boris Cheval2,3, Silvio Maltagliati4, Zachary Zenko5, Fabian Herold6, Sebastian Ludyga7, Markus Gerber7, Yan Luo8, Layan Fessler4, Notger G. Müller6, Liye Zou1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.7, pp. 799-812, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.028324

    Abstract Despite the well-established benefits of regular physical activity (PA) on health, a large proportion of the world population does not achieve the recommended level of regular PA. Although affective experiences toward PA may play a key role to foster a sustained engagement in PA, they have been largely overlooked and crudely measured in the existing studies. To address this shortcoming, the Affective Exercise Experiences (AFFEXX) questionnaire has been developed to measure such experiences. Specifically, this questionnaire was developped to assess the following three domains: antecedent appraisals (e.g., liking vs. disliking exercise in groups), core affective exercise experiences (i.e., pleasure vs.… More >

    Xiangli Guan1, Yue Zhang2, Yang Li1, Yaqi Zhang1,*, Jingjing Wang1, Xuejiao Li1, Mary C. Jobe3, Md Zahir Ahmed4, Oli Ahmed5

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.6, pp. 755-766, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.027086

    Abstract Because of factors such as energy and time one invests in an object, the stronger the connection, value, and reluctance to lose said object individual will have. Hoarding behavior arises when individuals incorporate a strong attachment with themselves to an object. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of self-investment on hoarding tendency and the roles of possession-self link and liking level in this connection. A hypothetical model of the relationship between self-investment, possession-self link, liking level, and hoarding tendency was tested. A convenience sampling method was used to survey 450 college students in Yunnan Province on… More >

They were asked to complete a series of questionnaires, including Moral Elevation Scale (MES), Perceived Social Support Scale (PSSS), Moral Identity Scale (MIS) and Prosocial Tendency Measure (PTM). As part of the data analysis, we used correlation analysis and the method of constructing latent variable structural equation model to explore the mechanism of action among variables.… More >

    Chenhao Sun, Shaobei Xiao, Ting Liu, Xiaolin Yuan*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 275-286, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.017934

    Abstract Objective: To study the influence of cognition and emotion on moral judgment of college students under the circumstance of whether the cognitive resources are occupied and whether the emotion is induced. Methods: This experiment uses a multi-factor mixed experiment method to divide experiments and groups. Experiment 1 uses a two-factor mixed experimental design of 2 (cognitive resource occupancy group, cognitive resource non-occupied group) × 3 (difficult situation type). Experiment 2 uses a two-factor mixed experimental design of 2 (emotion induction group, emotion induction and cognitive resource occupation group) × 3 (three types of dilemma situation types) is adopted. The dependent… More >

    Abstract Individuals’ perceptions, attitudes, and patterns of getting along with family members are important factors influencing Chinese people’s self-evaluation. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of family cohesion on depression and the role of perceived social support and intentional self-regulation in this association. A hypothesized model of the association of family cohesion, perceived social support, intentional self-regulation, and depression was examined. A convenience sampling method was used to survey 1,180 college students in Yunnan Province using self-report. Data were collected using the Family Cohesion Scale, the Perceived Social Support Scale, the Intentional Self-Regulation Scale, and the Center… More >

    Moderating Mechanism in the Relationship between Social Isolation and Mental Health among College Students during High-Risk Period of COVID-19 Transmission in Hubei, China

    Dong Yang1, Chia Ching Tu1, Zhengyan Guo2, Xiao Dai1, Chia Feng Tu3,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 193-206, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.022130

    Abstract This study explored the effect of perceived social isolation on the mental health of college students during the high-risk period of COVID-19 transmission in Hubei, China and the role of social support from online friends in alleviating this effect. The questionnaire responses of 213 college students from four universities in Hubei were included. Measurement and structural models were constructed using structural equation modeling. The findings revealed that perceived social isolation while under home quarantine was a negative predictor of the mental health of college students in Hubei. Low social support from online friends may lead to a relatively strong relationship… More >

    Ting Wang1,#, Jin Kuang1,#, Fabian Herold2, Alyx Taylor3, Sebastian Ludyga4, Zhihao Zhang1, Arthur F. Kramer5,6, Liye Zou1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 127-138, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.022504

    Abstract The rising prevalence of physical inactivity is in all age groups (e.g., in college students) a major public health issue as not meeting the recommended minimum amount of regular physical activity is linked to adverse health events. Vice versa, there is mounting evidence that achieving the recommended amount of regular physical activity is a vital element to prevent chronic diseases, but there is often an insufficient adherence to planned and structured forms of physical activity (i.e., physical exercises). In this context, there is a large body of evidence indicating that exercise adherence is, among other factors, influenced by exercise-related affective… More >
