Objective: To explore the coping of high school
students and its relationship to mental health. Methods: Make a survey upon 320
students through coping questionnaire and MSMH. Results: High school
students often resort to problem solving and appeal to coping factors. No
distinct gender difference is found in coping . There are different
degrees of correlation between coping and mental health. Remarkable grade
difference is shown in the factor of appealing in coping and the three
factors of compulsion, anxiety and mental imbalance in mental health.
Conclusion: Relatively mature coping has come into existence among
high school students, but more guidance and assistance are in need in cultivating
the coping and improving the mental health.
