CUAMBA OSORIO, Nehemías  and  ZAZUETA SANCHEZ, Nitzia Astrid. Depression, coping and academic performance in psychology students. Dilemas contemp. educ. política valores [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.spe1, 00011.  Epub Mar 26, 2021. ISSN 2007-7890.

Starting from the general objective: To identify the presence of indicators of depression and coping skills by analyzing the differences in the variables between groups of academic performance in psychology students, a quantitative and cross-sectional investigation was structured. The BDI-II and CSI scales were applied to a sample of 181 students, analyzing the data with statistics such as Student's T. Results: it was observed that the level of prevalence of depression in students is high, and coping skills low; furthermore, the hypothesis of differences between the variables by academic performance group was null, which is likely that performance is a protective factor as a way to distract from a reality that students perceive as annoying.

Keywords : depression; coping skills; academic performance; psychology students.
