The results show that 43.97% of the postgraduates suffer mental health problems of varying degrees, and a larger proportion of them are confronted with mild mental problems. The findings also reveal that the postgraduates score greatly higher than the SCL-90 National Norm of Chinese Adults in the four factors of compulsion, anxiety, terror and mental illness symptoms, while the two factors of interpersonal sensitivity and hostility are significantly lower. Besides, female postgraduates, English-related postgraduates and postgraduates from rural areas, whose mental health are worse, may be under greater pressure.
