    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 findings revealed that perceived social isolation while under home quarantine was a negative predictor of the mental health of college students in Hubei.

    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… More >

    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.

    Marcela Carrasco1,*, MBeatriz Fernández2, Emma Alexander3, MSoledad Herrera2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.1, pp. 99-109, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.011568

    Abstract Loneliness is considered a public health problem that negatively affects wellbeing, especially in the older population. In Latin-American countries, most of the older population live with their family. Although this is thought to diminish feelings of loneliness, there is scarce data to support this. The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of loneliness and evaluate its association with objective social networks, family functioning and perception of social support, in a sample of older people from Santiago, Chile. A survey was conducted of a representative sample of community older people (60–97 years) from… More >
