This study was designed for the purpose of the relationship between psychopathology and suicide in North Korean Refugee Adolescents.
METHODS
The subjects were 104 North Korean Refugee Adolescents. We investigated the The Korean version of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies for Depression, Revised Children's Manifest Anxiety Scale and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale. We also investigated the suicide ideation, planning and attempt. The self-report was taken to the North Korean Refugee Adolescents.
RESULTS
The Center for Epidemiologic Studies for Depression Score(Z=−4.050, p < 0.001), Revised Children's Manifest Anxiety Score(t=−2.757, p < 0.01), Rosenberg Self-Seteem Score(Z=−2.328, p < 0.05) were significantly associated with the suicide ideation in North Korean Refugee Adolescents. In logistic regression analysis, only The Center for Epidemiologic Studies for Depression Score(p < 0.005) expected the suicidal ideation.
