    Zhe Yu1,2, Shuping Yang1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.4, pp. 271-278, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2024.048342

    Abstract This study aims to revise the Belief in a Just World Scale (BJWS) for Chinese college students and test its reliability and validity (construct validity, convergent and divergent validity). Two samples of 546 and 595 college students were selected, respectively, using stratified cluster random sampling. Item analysis, exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), reliability analysis and convergent and divergent validity tests were carried out. The results showed that the 13 items of the BJWS have good item discrimination. The corrected item–total correlation in the general belief in a just world subscale was found… More >

    Mehdi Hassan1, Shuanghu Fang1,*, Muhammad Rizwan2, Asma Seemi Malik3, Iqra Mushtaque4

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 1-9, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.043096

    Abstract This study examined the effects of financial stress, parental expectation and test anxiety on suicidal ideation in pre-medical students. For this purpose, a cross-sectional research design was used, and data were collected through a non-probability sampling technique. The sample consisted of 425 pre-medical students. Our results indicate a strong and positive association between parental expectation and suicidal ideation (β = 0.272; t = 3.573; p < 0.000). Likewise, entrance test exam anxiety has a positive association with suicidal ideation among pre-medical students (β = 0.394; t = 3.933; p < 0.000). Lastly, there is a significant More >

    Do Public Health Events Promote the Prevalence of Adjustment Disorder in College Students? An Example from the COVID-19 Pandemic

    Rong Fu*, Luze Xie

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 21-30, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.041730

    Abstract COVID-19, as one of the most serious sudden public health problems in this century, is a serious threat to people’s mental health. College students, as a vulnerable group, are more likely to develop mental health problems. When the body is unable to adapt to new changes in the environment, the main mental health problem that arises is adjustment disorder. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and influencing factors of adjustment disorder among college students during the COVID-19 outbreak in China. Cross-sectional data collected by web-based questionnaires were obtained through convenience sampling… More >

    Siyuan Bi1, Junfeng Yuan1,2, Lin Luo1,2,3,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 51-60, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.041614

    Abstract Purpose: The core component theory of addiction behavior provides a multidimensional theoretical model for measuring social networking addiction. Based on this theoretical model, the Social Networking Addiction Scale (SNAS) was developed. The aim of this study was to test the psychometric properties of the Chinese version of the SNAS (SNAS-C). Methods: This study used a sample of 3383 Chinese university students to conduct confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to explore the structural validity of the SNAS-C. This study examined the Pearson correlations between the six subscales of the SNAS-C (i.e., salience, mood modification, tolerance, withdrawal symptoms,… More >

    Yulan Yu1,2, Rassamee Chotipanvithayakul3, Hujiao Kuang4, Wit Wichaidit3,*, Chonghua Wan1,2,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.12, pp. 1343-1351, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.043446

    Abstract Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can negatively affect mental health, whereas character strengths seem to be positively correlated with mental health. Detailed information on the history of ACEs among university students in China and the extent which mental health is associated with ACEs and character strengths can contribute to the needed empirical evidence for relevant stakeholders. Objectives of this study are 1) to estimate the prevalence of ACEs among undergraduate students in Southern China; and 2) to assess the extent which mental health outcomes (positive growth, well-being, and depression) are associated with ACEs and character strengths… More >

    The Relationship between Students’ Anxiety and Internet Use Disorders: A Meta-Analysis

    Yichi Zhang#, Yuxiang Feng#, Shan Hu*, Huiyong Fan*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.12, pp. 1323-1341, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.029096

    Abstract Theoretical models have predicted a positive association between anxiety and Internet use disorders. However, the findings of previous studies are conflicting, with some reporting a positive association and others proposing no relationship between the two. To explore the true relationship between the two and analyze the reasons for the differences, 100 primary studies involving 108,539 subjects were entered into a meta-analysis. The results showed that (1) there was a significant positive correlation between students’ anxiety and Internet use disorder (r = 0.330); (2) the moderating effect of anxiety type was significant. (3) The moderating effects of More >
