Poster presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013, Sunday, November 17, 2013

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the differences of family interaction, personality, spiritual well-being, depression, and suicidal ideation between nursing students and patients with mental illness.

Methods: This was a cross sectional descriptive research design. The data was collected by structured questionnaires and SPSS was used for data analysis including descriptive data, independent t test, and Chi-square.

Results: There were 44 nursing students and 39 patients with mental illness recruited in this study. The mean age of nursing students was 23.88 (SD = 4.63). The mean age of patients was 33.13 (SD = 10.16). There were statistically significant differences between nursing students and patients in family interaction. Nursing students had higher scores than patients’ scores in positive family interactions including child monitor, inductive reasoning, communication, positive reinforcement, involvement, and total scores of positive family interaction. Nursing students had lower scores than patients’ scores in negative family interactions including harsh discipline and total scores of negative family interaction. Nursing students had higher scores than patients’ scores in personality including agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, intellect, and total scores of personality. Nursing students had higher scores than patients’ scores in spiritual well-being including faith/believe, life/self-responsibility, life satisfaction and self-actualization, and total scores of spiritual well-being. Compared with nursing students, there were a higher percentage of patients who should talk to mental health professionals. There was a statistically significant difference between nursing students and patients in suicidal ideation and behavior.

Conclusion: There were significant differences between nursing students and patients with mental illness in family interaction, personality, spiritual well-being, depression and suicidal ideation. Therefore, how to improve family interaction, positive personality and spiritual well-being are important that will decrease people’s depression and suicidal ideation.
