Description
We described several characteristics of life habit, health and school conditioning, and academic performance in student with and without poor practice of learning (PPL) and suicidal ideation (SI) among university freshmen (n=2,133) in Japan. In this study, PPL students are defined as those who are frequently late for and absent from classes, and left school. PPL students had lower stress coping evaluated by sense of coherence score (SOC), higher prevalence of depressive symptom evaluated by Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) and better scores for university entrance examination in mathematics and English, compared with without PPL. Prevalence of SI was 5.9 % (n=119). Students with SI had unfavorable health conditions such as worse sleep, and lower stress coping, quality of school life and communication ability to friend, compared to students without SI. More than 70% of student with SI felt chronic sleepless in daily life. In addition, they had irregular life style and used cellular phone and social network service for longer time. These results implied that both the PPL and SI were valuable screening item for primary care of mental health in university freshmen. Further research is needed to elucidate the relationship between life style factors and their mental health status.
