          Objective To explore the relationship between childhood maltreatment and suicide ideation of college students, so as to provide basis for physical and mental health of college students.

          Methods Students from 6 universities in Shanxi Province (3 854 college students provided eligible questionniare for childhood abuse and 3 882 for suicidal ideation) were selected by multistage random cluster sampling from May to July 2018, the Chinese Version of the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire and the Self-rating Idea of Suicide Scale were used in the survey

          Results Of all subjects, 42.4% had at least one kind of abuse experience in childhood and 3.9% had suicidal ideation in the past week. By chi square test, the detection rate of suicidal ideation of college students who suffered physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, physical neglect, emotional neglect in childhood was higher than that of college students without maltreatment ( χ 2 = 13.78, 12.97, 17.10, 56.56, 66.58, P<0.01); Spearman correlation analysis showed that there was a positive correlation between each type of maltreatment in childhood and college students’ suicidal ideation ( r = 0.06, 0.06, 0.07, 0.12, 0.13, P<0.01); Multivariate Logistic regression model found that after controlling other influencing factors, physical neglect and emotional neglect in childhood were independent risk factors for suicide ideation of college students ( OR = 2.18, 2.07, P<0.05).

          Conclusion Physical neglect and emotional neglect in childhood can increase the risk of college students’ suicidal ideation. Paying enough attention and care to them in early childhood may help to prevent their suicidal ideation in adulthood.
