CASP-I's Healthy Students Survey Vietnam (HSS-V; 2012)
CASP-I has worked on a collaborative research project to collect epidemiological data on risk and protective factors among Vietnamese adolescents. In January 2013, data collection for the Healthy Student-Vietnam Survey was completed with the partnership of Doctors Michael Hass, Phuong Le, and Brian Leung from the U.S., as well as Đỗ Hạnh Ngaat, Trần Tú Anh, and Nguyễn Thị Minh Hằng from Vietnam. The results from this collaborative research project indicated the following:
- 34% of high school students reported being depressed
- 44.6% resided Ho Chi Minh City
- 14.4% of the students in the survey reported having suicidal ideation
- 15% showed signs of video game addiction
On another collaborative research project, a principal of a high school of more than one thousand students in Hà Nội proposed that CASP-V use his school as a case study for designing and piloting a school wide prevention and intervention program. All attendees expressed their desire to continue to receive professional support from the instructors and U.S. CASP-V members. Pre- and post-tests were administered and are now being translated and scored, with results indicating success of the summer training.
