There was a meaningful correlation between A, B and C (except compulsive) clusters of personality disorders and suicidal ideation and A, B (except narcissistic) and C (except compulsive) clusters of personality disorders and positive and negative emotion of students. Based on the results of multivariate regression, personality disorders have explained 12%, 4% and 12% of the variance of suicide ideation, positive emotion and negative emotion respectively (p<0.01).
