School Adjustment, Social Support, and Mental Health of Mainland Chinese College Students in Hong Kong
Chui, Raymond Chi-Fai; Chan, Chi-Keung
Journal of College Student Development, v58 n1 p88-100 Jan 2017
We investigated the relationship of school adjustment and social support with the mental health of mainland Chinese college students studying in Hong Kong. During the spring semester in 2011, 384 mainland Chinese college students across the postsecondary institutions in Hong Kong completed a questionnaire. Results showed that better school adjustment and higher perceived social support had significant positive relationships with the mental health of the mainland Chinese college students, while stress had a negative relationship with their mental health. Social support also acted as a moderator to the relationship between school adjustment and mental health.
