Objectives: The objective of this study is to explore the relationship between college students' emotion management ability and mental health. Methods: A total of 1000 college students from four universities in our city were selected as the object of the study. The emotion management ability of 1000 college students was analyzed by means of questionnaire, and the mental health status of college students was measured with symptom checklist (SCL)-90. The average scores of the five dimensions of college students' emotional management ability are classified as follows: Controlling negative vent >rational regulation >seeking outside support >controlling negative suggestion >positive remedy. Results: The results showed that there were obvious negative correlations between the three factors and the SCL-90 factors, such as the rational control of college students, the control of negative implications, and the control of negative venting. However, there is only a negative correlation between college students' seeking outside help and interpersonal, paranoid, psychotic, and depressive factors. Positive remedies were negatively correlated with the symptoms of compulsion, psychosis, and depressive factors, while positive remedies and paranoia factor and hostile factor are obviously related. Conclusions: In the investigation of college students' emotional management ability, the five dimensions are closely related to their mental health status. Therefore, we should pay attention to the cultivation of college students' emotional ability and encourage them to participate in some meaningful activities to improve their mental health.
