    Impact of Precariousness and Perceived Social Support, on the Return to Work of Women with Breast Cancer, in the Year Following the Beginning of Adjuvant Treatments

    Influence de la précarité sociale et du soutien social perçu, sur le retour au travail des femmes ayant un cancer du sein, dans l’année suivant le début des traitements adjuvants

    B. Porro, A. Michel, F. Cousson-Gélie

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 273-281, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0181

    Abstract The aim is to assess the associations between social precariousness, perceived social support, and the return to work (RTW) in the first year following the beginning of adjuvant breast cancer treatment. Sixty-eight breast cancer patients encountered when starting their adjuvant treatment (T0) were followed up at 3 (T1) and 12 months (T2). Friends’ informative support at T0 favours the RTW at T1. Precariousness and negative support at T0 and T2 decrease the likelihood of RTW at T2. RTW support should be offered and tailored at the outset of treatment.

    A.T. Bambara, A.J.K. Nébié, A.C. Sama, F. Akanni, R. Sombié

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 365-373, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0204

    Abstract The aim of this study was to analyze the expectations of cancer patients from their main caregivers in a resource-limited setting. We also seek to determine the concordance between these expectations and the roles assumed by their main caregivers. In total, 72 dyad volunteers (patient and main caregiver) participated in the study. Patients’ expectations varied according to location (hospital, home, other locations). The agreement between these expectations and the services provided by their main caregivers was poor based on kappa statistic.

    Can Social Support be Protective against Depressive Symptoms in Adolescents from 24 Low- and Middle-Income Countries?

    Haowen Wu1, Zhanli Yi1, Tianyou Guo2,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.3, pp. 375-387, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.021505

    Abstract Background: Adolescents are highly vulnerable to depressive symptoms worldwide partially because of limited social supports. However, it still remains largely unknown regarding the associations between social support(s) and depressive symptoms among adolescents living in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The aim of this study aimed to explore the associations between different types of social support and depressive symptoms in adolescents from LMICs. Methods: Data were retrieved from the Global School-based Health Survey (GSHS) in which 92,551 adolescents (50.6% females) were included with mean of 15.6 years. Depressive symptoms in the past one month as the dependent variable were measured in… 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 >

    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 >

    Neighborhood Disadvantage and Self-Esteem—Do Socioeconomic and Relational Resources Matter?

    Joongbaeck Kim1, Manacy Pai2,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.3, pp. 311-329, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.017555

    Abstract Extensive research suggests that living in a socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhood is associated with poor mental health. Few studies, however, have examined (1) whether neighborhood disadvantage is associated with residents’ self-esteem; and (2) the extent to which individual-level socioeconomic resources such as income and education, and relational resources such as marriage and social support moderate the association between neighborhood disadvantage and self-esteem. This study employs data from the Americans’ Changing Lives panel survey (hereafter ACL), a 15-year panel study of the U.S. adult population ages 25 and older in original sample. Because hierarchical linear model was employed to analyze data, findings… More >

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.1, pp. 121-140, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.013072

    Abstract To explore the relationship between social support and sleep quality of community workers in Wuhan during the coronavirus disease 2019 (the COVID-19 infection epidemic), this research constructed a mediating effect model to explore the mediating psychological mechanism of social support influencing sleep quality of front-line community workers. A total of 500 front-line community workers in Wuhan were investigated. We used the perceived social support scale (PSSS), the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC), the perceived stress scale (PSS), and the Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) to measure social support, psychological resilience, perceived stress and sleep quality. Specifically, the higher the PSQI, the… More >
