Bo Liu, Lichuan Luo, Qianyin Xiao


This paper aims to identify the main influencing factors of the mental health of ant tribe young intellectuals (ATYIs) and ascertain those factors in favor of mental health. Based on the research findings in cognitive neuroscience, the author explored the main factors affecting the mental health of the ATYIs through a questionnaire survey on 904 youngsters graduated in the past five years. The questionnaire evaluates the overall mental health of the respondents with four psychological test scales, namely Positive PsyCap Questionnaire (PPQ), Symptom Checklist 90 (SCL-90), Adult Dispositional Hope Scale (ADHS), and Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). Through the analysis, it is concluded that family income, academic performance, and interpersonal relationship are the main influencing factors of the mental health among the ATYIs. The research finding provides a reference for mental health education in colleges and points the direction for the ATYIs to improve their mental health.
