ABSTRACT
We studied the mental health of adolescent earthquake survivors during the COVID-19 pandemic by measuring their psychological disorders with the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS) and their risk factors with the Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS). We conducted an exploratory factor analysis and logistic regression modeling and the results revealed that there were high levels of depression and anxiety among the 385 participants. Significant indicators of depression as measured by the SDS were family monthly income, years of education of the adolescents, and marital status of parents. The SAS measured family monthly income as a significant factor predicting anxiety. This study will provide references for future psychological support and early interventions for disadvantaged groups during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
