Abstract


THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LEVEL AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
Abstract The purpose of the present research is studying the relationship between depression, anxiety and physical activity among young individuals who study at secondary schools. On voluntary basis, 226 male and 137 female; a total of 363 students between the ages 13-19 (average 15,44±1,25) participated in the research. The data related to physical activity variable were collected with “IPAQ Long Form – International Physical Activity Questionnaire; data related to Depression variable were collected with “Beck Depression Inventory”, and data related to Anxiety variable were collected with “Beck Anxiety Inventory”. Statistical analyses revealed that 63.3% of male students, and 75.1% of female students were not physically active or didn’t have adequate physical activity levels; and physical activity level of male students were significantly higher than female students (Independent Sample T-test; p<0.05). There were no statistically significant differences across genders in terms of Anxiety and Depression scores (Independent Sample T-test; p<0.05), and physical activity classification (One Way ANOVA; p>0.05). Additionally, there were no statistically significant correlations between anxiety, depression and physical activity (Pearson Correlation; p>0.05). Consequently, we can claim that physical activity level is quite low among secondary school students. However, depression and anxiety aren’t affected from physical activity level.
