Abstract


This study examined the prevalence of stress and its relationship with depression and anxiety among Iranian students. The data is collected from Iranian students who are studying in Indian universities and colleges, especially among Iranian students who are studying in Bangalore and Mysore (Karnataka). Stress Vulnerability Scale (SVS) was used to measure stress, I.P.A.T Anxiety Scale is used to assess anxiety and Beck Depression Inventory-Revised used to assess depression. The findings of this study showed that the out of 600 students (36.3%) of the students had some resistance to stress, followed by (31.5%) of them experienced some vulnerability, (9.0%) of them had excellent resistance and remaining (6.0%) of them had serious vulnerability. When relationship between stress, depression and anxiety was examined, result showed that scores of depression and anxiety are correlated. In other words, these variables were positively and linearly related to each other, as scores in depression and anxiety increase, scores in stress also increase linearly and significantly and vice versa. Therefore, they may need more attention in counseling and stress management strategies compared to younger groups.
