The problem of college students' mental health is ultimately a cultural issue and a question of values. The core of Confucian culture is ethics and values. Therefore, solving the mental health problems of college students also needs to return to the tradition. Starting from "knowledge and action", "righteousness and benefits", and "group-self relationship", we will revisit the teachings of Confucian philosophers at both ends, help guide college students to think seriously, cultivate a positive and enterprising attitude towards life, experience the dilemma of a balanced life, learn the wisdom of seeking harmony also respecting differences, and build a comparatively harmonious and healthy character. Contemporary college students are more confident. They are brave to express themselves, dare to love and hate, and never follow suit. The understanding of personal value emphasizes the perfection of individual personality and the freedom and independence of life. Therefore, it is of practical significance to make use of the nourishment of Chinese excellent Confucian culture, explore two ends of a thing, cultivate the value rationality of college students, help them gradually form positive psychological mechanism of optimistic attitude towards life, mature and stable interpersonal communication, natural development of physical and mental will mechanism, and relatively harmonious and perfect healthy personality.
