Based on the descriptive analysis results, the level of feeling sad and depressed of students is the lowest and the nominal factors that affect students’ mental health are needed to do a part-time job due to financial difficulties of the family members. The level of mental health has no significant relationship with the effect on academic performance. While the factors that affect their mental health have a significant relationship with the effect on their academic performance.
