ABSTRACT

Stress is the extent to which individuals perceive that their demands exceed their ability to cope. Stressful events in an external or internal environment of a person can result in illness or suffering if there is failure to adapt oneself to change. The amount of stress that young adults face nowadays is very high. Due to strain of studies, the constant worrying about job availability and general lifestyle changes, a large increase in suicidal attempts has been seen. But even in these dire circumstances, there seems to be a buffering role of religiosity against stress in the young adults. The present research venture was aimed to study the relation between perceived stress, suicidal ideation and religiosity among young adults. The sample consisted of 60 young adults (students) taken from various colleges from different parts of the Kashmir valley. The results of the study revealed that there was positive correlation between perceived stress and suicidal ideation, negative correlation between perceived stress and religiosity and no correlation between religiosity and suicidal ideation among young adults.
