ABSTRACT

Objectives: Recent evidence suggests that suicidal ideation is increasing among college going students, it is essential to upsurge our knowledge concerning the etiology of suicidal ideation among students. This study was conducted to examine the relationships between problem-solving skills appraisal, perceived burdensomeness, and suicidal ideation among University students. In addition, this study was conducted to examine problem-solving skills appraisal (including the three components: problem-solving confidence, approach-avoidance style, and personal control of emotion) and perceived burdensomeness as predictors of suicidal ideation. Methods: The participants consisted of 350 students from NCR located Universities. Results: Regression analysis estimated that undergraduate students with avoiding style, poor problem-solving confidence, limited personal control of emotion and perceived burdensomeness were associated with higher suicidal ideation. Problem-solving skills appraisal (including the three components of problem-solving confidence, approach-avoidance style, and personal control of emotion) and perceived burdensomeness predicted the suicidal ideation. Conclusion These findings underline the importance of studying contributing processes that explain how problem solving and perceived burdensomeness affects suicidal ideation.
