CECCONELLO, William Weber; BATISTELLA, Francieli; WAHL, Suzi Darli Zanchett  e  WAGNER, Marcia Fortes. Evaluation of depressive and social phobia symptoms in undergraduate students. Aletheia [online]. 2013, n.42, pp.71-81. ISSN 1413-0394.

Symptoms of mental disorders bring numerous prejudice to individuals. Among these disturbances, Depression Disorder and Social Phobia (FS) are highlighted. Both directly affect the social life of human beings and, considering the constant need to interact with others, it becomes important to investigate the symptomatology of comorbid disorders. The present study is configured as quantitative, observational. The sample consisted of 40 subjects, undergraduate students of an institution of higher education in the Rio Grande do Sul. The instruments used were Social Anxiety Questionnaire for Adults (SAQ-30) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Of the total sample, 67.5% (n = 27) were female and 32.5% (n = 13) male, with a mean age of 25.9 years (SD = 9,34). The results indicated that 62% (n=25) showed Social Phobia symptoms. From this amount 28% (n=7) had mild depression symptoms and 20% (n=5) showed moderate intensity depression symptoms scores. The data suggest that individuals with symptoms of Social Phobia have comorbid depressive symptoms.
