Abstract

Aim: Family function affects college students’ psychotic experience and what behaviors they have or have produced in daily life, and the corresponding effects of these behaviors. Through the problems reflected in the research institute, to create a family environment suitable for the physical and mental health of college students, to provide reference for the prevention of mental illness, promote the healthy growth of college students, the comprehensive development to lay a family foundation. Methods: Family functioning was assessed by the Family Function Rating Scale (FAD) and psychotic experiences were investigated in 715 college students by the Propsychotic Scale (PQ). With higher scores for all dimensions of family function, it indicates worse family function and worse psychotic experience. Establish the decision tree model and the path analysis model, find out the core factors affecting the psychotic experience, and clarify the direct or indirect influence of each factor on the psychotic experience. Results: In this study, 40 students were less than 2, accounting for 5.5% of the total; 672 students were less than 3, accounting for 91.7% of the total; 3 students were more than or equal to 3, accounting for 0.4% of the total; this indicates that the family function of college students is poor. The scores of the psychotic experience of college students all exceeded the assessed value, and the new experience of mental illness was more serious. Family function overall is a negative predictor of the psychotic experience. Decision tree and path analysis show that the role and emotional involvement dimensions in family function may be the core factors affecting the psychotic experience. Conclusion: Exploring the extent to which family functioning affects new experiences of psychosis helps to develop and target interventions to mitigate the increased risk of psychotic experiences among college students.
