Abstract:   (77 Views)
Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate a structural equations model concerning the factors influencing the psychological distress experienced by female heads of households.
Methods: A total of 1200 female heads of households aged between 25 and 40 years were involved in this research. Data collection tools included a demographic information form, a self-developed psychological adversity questionnaire for female household heads, and a mental health questionnaire. The data collected were analyzed using SPSS-24 software, and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was conducted through the Amos software.
Results: The goodness-of-fit values for the model examining factors contributing to mental adversities fell within an acceptable range. The analysis revealed that depression, resilience, and anxiety were the most influential variables impacting the psychological distress experienced by female heads of households. Nonetheless, no significant associations were found between psychological adversities and educational level, place of residence, family structure, and smoking habits.
Conclusions: The outcomes support the concept that the psychological well-being of parents can lead to positive outcomes on the academic and emotional success of students.
