Objectives: This study evaluated the effects and relevant factors of community-based education and advocacy intervention on stroke awareness among the general population. Methods: The study enrolled 505 community-dwelling adults aged 19 years or older who completed a survey before and after a community-based intervention held between May 2014 and December 2014. Trained staff collected data about knowledge of five stroke warning signs, emergency response, golden window of time (
), and demographics. Results: After the intervention, public awareness of all five stroke warning signs increased significantly from 26.5% to 33.9% (p=0.011). Public awareness of the golden window of time also increased significantly from 70.1% in April 2014 to 75.8% in December 2014 (p=0.040). In a multivariate logistic regression analysis, older age, higher education level, and exposure to stroke-related public service announcements or educational materials were significant predictors of knowledge of all five warning signs for stroke. Conclusions: Comprehensive community-based intervention is effective for improving public awareness of the warning signs of stroke and the golden window of time.

Objectives: This study aims to identify the psychosocial factors affecting on happiness among the general population in South Korea. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted using the multiple-stratified random sampling on the Korea Census of 2005. In October 2009, investigators conducted 15-minute face-to-face interviews with 1,500 South Korean volunteers ranging from 30 to 69 years old with no history of cancer. The questionnaire included socio-demographics, stress levels, coping strategies, social support, SOC, and happiness levels. Results: The multivariate analysis identified that married persons were more likely to be happy than those who were not married, respondents who had a higher score of stress and SOC were less likely to be happy, and those who had a higher score of social support from family were more likely to be happy. Conclusions: Interventions designed to increase happiness may need to include activities to control stress and promote social support from family.

DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2015.32.1.23
Objectives: The main objectives of this research is to reveal the mediating effects of subjective health rates on the relationship between stress and life satisfaction of the persons with mental illness. Methods: This study used the data from 2011 Disabled survey by Ministry of health and welfare. The study subjects were 98,801 persons with mental illness. Mediating effects of subjective health rate was analyzed using regression analysis and sobel test. Results: The stress was negatively correlated with the subjective health rates and life satisfaction. And the subjective health rates was positively correlated with life satisfaction. Second, the subjective health rates worked as partial mediators on the relationship between stress and life satisfaction of the persons with mental illness. The implication and limitations of this study were discussed, and suggestions for further study were proposed. Conclusion: This study highlights that the mediating effects of subjective health rates on the relationship between stress and life satisfaction of the persons with mental illness. Health and welfare policy encouraging subjective health rates and reducing level of the stress to improve life satisfaction of the persons with mental illness should be considered.

DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2015.32.1.45
Objectives: This study is aimed at exploring the temporal developmental relationship of adolescent depression and parents' child-rearing attitudes, and to examine gender differences in the relationship. The middle school students of the 2011-2013 1st Korea Children and Youth Panel data were used for analysis and the sample consisted of 2.073 individuals. Methods: Research questions were answered through the Latent Growth Model and Autoregressive Cross-Lagged Model. Results: As the results of the Latent Growth Model show, adolescent depression declines as time goes by and there are differences in the depression felt by individuals. An autoregressive cross-lagged model and multiple group analysis were executed by gender. The results show significant gender differences in the relationship between depression and Parents' child-rearing attitudes. Parental neglect has shown differences influencing adolescents depression between males and females. However, in case of parental abuse, no differences between males and females were observed. Conclusion: The results of this study imply that the policy on depression should be carefully considered when preparing for interventions targeting adolescents by gender.

DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2015.32.1.57
Objectives: This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of a School-based Depression Awareness Education Program on depression knowledge and help-seeking orientation for adolescent. Methods: The students of two high schools were allocated to the intervention (n=221) or control group (n=223) in this cluster-randomized trial. The school-based depression awareness education was a 3-hour program. The intervention group received pre, post and follow up tests while the control group received pre and follow up tests after two months. Depression knowledge, attitude to friends'depression, and help-seeking for professional assistance was evaluated at each test. Differences in the two month change between the intervention and control groups were analyzed by t-test or chi-square test. Results: There were positive changes in depression knowledge, response to friend's depression, and attitude to professional help-seeking in the post test compared to the pretest among intervention group. Improvement of depression knowledge was greater in the intervention group than in the control group (P=0.011), but there were no significant differences in response to friend's depression (P=0.268) or help-seeking orientation (P=0.263) after two months. Conclusions: School-based Depression Awareness Education resulted in significant positive changes in depression knowledge in high school students, but made no attitudes difference to professional help-seeking.

Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 32, issue 1, 2015, Pages 67~76
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2015.32.1.67
Objectives: This study performed to verify Korea National Health and Examination Survey(KNHAES) to monitor recommended physical activity(PA) and to propose an monitoring tools for evidence-based PA projects. Methods: The characteristics of the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire(GPAQ) and its reliability and validity were overviewed based on the current scientific evidence in the field of PA. Relevant articles were identified through multiple sources including PubMed, Science Direct, Scopus, CINAHL, ASP, RISS4U, and KISS. Results: The GPAQ has strong points over the Short Form of International Physical Activity Questionnaire(IPAQ-SF) as a monitoring tool to meet recommended PA levels for three domains separately and reflecting a better understanding about walking. Its reliability and validity also were reported as acceptable in existing studies overall. Some limitations of this questionnaire, however, need to be addressed to improve its quality. Conclusions: For monitoring of evidenced-based physical activity projects, we considered that it is able to be provided an opportunity for in-depth discussion among academic experts and policy-makers about the necessity of complements for KNHAES and applying new tools, and it could be the basis for development of physical activity monitoring tool in the future.
