Abstract

The purpose of this research is to investigate the impact of quality of life and self-compassion on depression symptoms among undergraduate students. The prevalence of undergraduate students with depressive symptoms continues increase from year to year. Depression symptoms experienced by these students may lead to the possibility of impaired in academic performance, decreased academic achievement, drugs and alcohol abuse, and suicide. We employed a correlational study with the undergraduate students. A total of 375 participants aged 18 to 25 years old were recruited from Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi (JABODETABEK) or outside JABODETABEK. The participants were selected based on gender, and currently active as an undergraduate student. The outcomes were depression (BDI-II), quality of life (WHOQOL-BREF) and self-compassion (SCS). Data analysis was performed using the regression test. The result shows that there is a negative and significant impact between quality of life and self-compassion on depression symptoms among undergraduate students. The findings indicate that quality of life and self-compassion are significant predictors of depression symptoms among undergraduate students. If undergraduate students have high quality of life and self-compassion, it can be predicted that the symptoms of depression will be low.
