ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of social stigma on depression in out-of-school adolescents and to examine the mediating effects of self-esteem on the relationship between these variables. For this purpose, frequency analysis, descriptive statistical analysis, and correlation analysis were conducted using the survey data for the second year (2014) of the 'School Drop-Out Adolescents Panel Study', which was constructed by the National Youth Policy Institute. The main results of this study are as follows. First, there was a positive correlation between social stigma and depression of Out-of-School adolescents, and a negative correlation between social stigma and self-esteem. In addition, self-esteem and depression were negatively correlated. Second, social stigma of adolescents was found to have a statistically significant effect on depression, these variables were found to have a statistically significant causal relationship. Third, self-esteem has a partial mediating effect on the effects of social stigma on depression of out-of-school adolescents. Based on the results of this study, we discussed and suggested suggestions for reducing social stigma and depression and improving self-esteem.
