Relationship between stress, anxiety, and depression with happiness in students of Bam medical university in 2019
Psychological issues and happiness are among the factors affecting the students' academic achievement. The present study was an attempt to investigate the level of stress, anxiety, and depression among students of Bam University of Medical Sciences and their relationship with the level of happiness in 2019. This was a descriptive-analytical study conducted on 300 Bam medical students, who were selected as the study sample based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. To collect data, DASS-21 and Oxford Happiness Questionnaires were used. Data were analyzed in SPSS-23 software using descriptive and inferential statistical tests. The significance level in this study was considered at a p-value <0.05.
Based on the results, 175 (58.3%) were female and their mean age was 22.46 ± 2.05 years. The mean of depression was 5.08 with a standard deviation of 3.75. The mean of anxiety was 4.20 ± 2.96, the mean of stress was 7.70 ± 4.23, and the mean of happiness was 42.57 ± 11.98. Also, 82.7% of subjects were single, which was associated with a pattern of depression. The results of the study suggested that happiness is negatively correlated with depression, anxiety, and stress so that happiness decreased with increasing depression, anxiety, and stress. Thus, it is recommended for university officials to have careful planning to reduce depression, anxiety, and stress in order to increase happiness of students and consequently increase their academic achievements.
