Study on Mental Health Problems of Students in Petroleum Universities

Good interpersonal relationship is an important part of the process of stu- dents’ growth and socialization, and is also a necessary condition for maintain- ing a good mental state. However, because of the interpersonal relationship, the complexity of the society and the simplicity of the students’ psychology, college students are often frustrated in interpersonal communication (Mental Health Strategies, 2012). Quite a few students from school to school, the lack of inter- personal skills, lack in public to express themselves and communicate with oth- ers the ability and the courage to face all kinds of activities, is full of interest and the fear of failure, in the course of time, or even avoid obstructing participation, good interpersonal circle. Some students, because of their understanding of themselves and people, are very hard to be intimate with or lack of intimate friends. Others cause conflicts and conflicts in communication because of per- sonality factors. By a survey in 2016 at southwest petroleum university, 36% of the freshmen thought no friends, 27% of them felt lonely, 45% of the students preferred to become the object of communication rather than the direct initiator of communication. At the same time, because the normal communication be- tween individuals is not enough, it is easy to cause suspicion and jealousy, which is not conducive to the healthy growth of students.
