Of interest, Szabo and le Grange (2001) did not refer to work by Lee (1996) who in a seminal paper based on his experience of the emergence of eating disorders amongst Chinese in Hong Kong had re-evaluated the meaning of “ culture bound ” ( Lee, 1996 ). Lee (1996) re-conceptualized “ culture-bound ”, describing this reconceptualization as “… trans-national and value driven across geographical locations rather than unique to locations i.e. within the culture of

-Lit status among the current study respondents ( Ram et al. 2016 ). Among the undergraduate students in Sri Lanka, the ability to recognize depression was found to be low (Amarasuiya et al. 2015). In China, about 12% respondents were able to recognize depression in a given vignette ( Wong et al. 2012 ). These differences can be explained by the different set-up of study, cultural construct of the respondents, different instruments, educational status of the respondents, educational system of the country, and the existing health promotional activities in the context

revealed acceptable reliability in all three domains of the scale, although these were measured by confirmatory factor analysis ( Tagliabue et al. 2014 ). The Chinese validation study revealed that the Cronbach’s alpha of each subscale was between 0.62 and 0.86 ( Fu et al. 2013 ). The Lithuanian 32-item PSDQ revealed the Cronbach’s alpha for the authoritative domain was 0.85, the authoritarian domain was 0.76, and the permissive domain was 0.58 ( Kern and Jonyniene 2012 ). The Persian study found that the Cronbach’s alpha for the authoritative and authoritarian domains

Repeated researches revealed the reverse gender pattern in Bangladesh in which women are dying more than their men counterparts, although exact gender ratio is yet to reveal ( Tandon & Nathani 2018 ; Bachmann 2018 ; Arafat in press). Similar pattern has been noticed in China also, where women are dying more ( Tandon & Nathani 2018
