Introduction: Many of the problems and psychiatric disorders such as depression are rooted in life skills and psychosocial factors. It seems that identifying mental and social capabilities associated with depression can play an important role in the effectiveness of interventions. This study aims to determine the relationship between depression, life skills and psycho-social abilities in teenage students in 2015.
Method:This cross-sectional study has been conducted on 600 high school students (14-17 age) in Isfahan. Randomized Multi-stage sampling has been carried out in different educational areas. Questionnaires on psychosocial capabilities and depression symptoms were used as the Data collection tool. Prior to the study, validity and reliability of the questionnaire on psychosocial capabilities was reviewed and approved. Linear regression analysis and SPSS 21 was used to examine the relationship between variables.
Results:The prevalence of major depression in pupils was 29.1 and in the female and male students were 32.9 and 25.4, respectively. Depression or life skills score and all of the psychosocial factors except recreational activities, had a significant and inverse correlation. Based on the results obtained from regression analysis, among the psychosocial predictive variables, standardized coefficient of decision-making skills (-0.31) was the only variable which showed a significant correlation (P<0.001). The results of ANOVA showed that regression model is significant (P<0.001).
Conclusion: The results showed that among the psychosocial variables, decision-making skills can effectively predict the rate of depression in the students.
