Abstract

In addressing the mental health of international students, individualism-collectivism is treated as a dimension of cultural distance that produces differential sensitivity to life events. A collectivist cultural orientation is hypothesized to promote depressive dysphoria in response to negative social events and to increase the inhibitory effect of positive social events. An individualist cultural orientation is hypothesized to promote depressive dysphoria in response to negative achievement-relate events and to increase the inhibitory effect of positive achievement-related events. A prospective study comparing Malaysian and British students at the same university confirmed the predicted cultural differences in sensitivity to social events. Predicted differences for achievement-related events were partially confirmed. Malaysian students were also considerably more dysphoric than their British counterparts, as expected.
