MICIN, Sonia  y  BAGLADI, Verónica. Mental Health in University Students: Incidence of Psychopathology and Suicidal Behavior Data in The Student Health Service Users. Ter Psicol [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.1, pp. 53-64. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082011000100006.

The objective of the study is to characterize the incidence of psychopathology and suicidal behavior data in university students who attend the Student Health Service have, and to determine differences and/or significant relationships with the individual gender. We used a non-experimental exploratory and quantitative. We collected suicidal behavior data and diagnoses according to DSM-IV (Axis I and II). The sample included 460 students who received psychological and/or psychiatric treatment between 01/2006 and 07/2008, using a random stratified sampling methodology. Relational and descriptive statistics was used. The results indicate the high consistent incidents with finds in university foreign and national populations. Rates were significant for adaptive disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders and suicidal behavior data. A high percentage of the students show clinical alterations related to anxiety and depression. A higher rate of adaptive disorders was found, compared with other disorders; and significant differences/associations with the gender for different disorders.
