Sažetak
Background and aim: International students on the University of Zagreb are diverse and increasing population. Demands for cultural adjustments frequently place international students at greater risk for psychological problems compare to than are students in general. The aim of this study was to analyze the reasons for utilization of existing counselling service by international students regarding mental health issues. Subjects and Methods: Data from medical records of 56 international students who visited counselling service because of mental health during the year 2014 were analyzed by descriptive statistic. The chi-square test was used to determine difference between sexes. Results: Help due to mental and behavioural disorders was required more by girls than boys (39 vs. 17). The most common reasons were adjustment disorders, present in 12 students, specific (isolated) phobias (seven students) and nonorganic insomnia (six students). Adjustment disorders (seven vs. five) and specific phobias (six vs. one) were present more in girls than in boys. Nonorganic insomnia had three boys and three girls. There was no statistically significant difference between sexes. Schizotypal disorder, predominantly obsessional thoughts or ruminations and post-traumatic stress disorder were present in equal number of students (four). Schizotypal disorder and predominantly obsessional thoughts were present only in girls (four) and post-traumatic stress had one boy and three girls. Conclusion: The results highlighted the importance of sufficient and readily accessible counselling health services for international students with holistic, preventive and optimistic approach.
