Abstract

In recent years suicide among university students is increasing. In this survey, we have got very important data about the level of mental health issues especially the percentage of suicidal ideation among students. A very strong correlation between the gender of the students and the level of mental health issues was found. The age range was narrow so there was no significant correlation with the level of mental health issues. The percentage of suicidal ideation was found 14.5 on average. 12.4% of Male students had suicidal ideation and 17.3% of female students had suicidal ideation. After analyzing suicidal ideation percentage based on the 8 divisions it was found that students whose home district was in Mymensingh, Dhaka, Chittagong had higher suicidal ideation rates 18%, 17.4%, 15.5% respectively. Those students’ home districts were in Rajshahi had the lowest percentage of suicidal ideation or higher suicidal chance. These percentages are very high and this is the reason for the higher number of suicide among Bangladeshi university students. The participants were from various Universities and covers various areas fo this the error rate is much lower than the surveys done in the past. This survey was done before the Coronavirus Pandemic.
