Objective: To explore the coping style of high school
students and its relationship to mental health. Methods: Make a survey upon 320
students through coping style 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 style. There are different
degrees of correlation between coping style and mental health. Remarkable grade
difference is shown in the factor of appealing in coping style and the three
factors of compulsion, anxiety and mental imbalance in mental health.
Conclusion: Relatively mature coping style has come into existence among
high school students, but more guidance and assistance are in need in cultivating
the coping style and improving the mental health.
