ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to examine whether hopelessness played a mediating roles in the association between stress and suicidality(suicidal ideation and suicide attempt), and purpose in life moderated the effect of life stress on hopelessness. In addition, the moderated mediation effect on the relationship between stress and suicidality was examined. A total of 344 university students completed a self-reporting questionnaire on stress, suicidal ideation, suicide attempt, hopelessness, and purpose in life. The results indicated that hopelessness mediated the relationship between stress and suicidality, and purpose in life moderated the relationship between stress and hopelessness. As a result, the moderated mediation effect of purpose in life on the association between stress, hopelessness, and suicidality was found. These findings suggest that purpose in life may function as a protective factor concerning university students’ suicidality.
