          Methods A comparative analysis of 6 114 freshmen with and without disabilities from an undergraduate college in Nanjing from 2018 to 2020 was measured by the SCL-90 Mental Health Symptom Self-Rating Scale.

          Results The positive detection rate of SCL-90 was 23. 29%, and the positive rate of disabled students was significantly higher than healthy students (χ 2 = 28.35, P<0.01); Disabled freshmen were significantly higher than healthy freshmen in the levels of all factors ( P<0.05); A longitudinal comparison of the positive detection rate of SCL-90 between the two groups of freshmen in three years, there was no statistical difference between the disabled freshmen (χ 2 = 5.82, P = 0.06), there was a statistical difference in healthy freshmen (χ 2 = 29.43, P<0.01); After interview with positive factor students, the composition ratio of freshmen with disabled of A and B was higher than that of healthy freshmen (χ 2 = 7.09, P<0.05) .

          Conclusion Mental health level of freshmen with disabled is lower than that of healthy freshmen. Mental health among freshmen without disabilities is worsening.
