Abstract

This study focused on investigating the relationship among suicidal ideation, cognitive distortion, hopelessness, social problem-solving, psychache and rumination. This research also assessed the mediating effects of hopelessness, social problem-solving, psychache and rumination on the relationship between cognitive distortion and suicidal ideation. A total of 414 undergraduates who have received career counseling service in an institute of higher learning had been selected by convenience sampling. The Spearman’s Rank Correlation, Bootstrapping regression, and mediation analysis were conducted to analyse the collected data. The finding showed that suicidal ideation is significantly and positively related to cognitive distortion, hopelessness, psychache and rumination, but negatively and significantly associated with social problem-solving. The hopelessness, social problem-solving, psychache and rumination were the significant mediators on the relationship between cognitive distortion and suicidal ideation. Limitations and suggestions for future studies were also discussed.
