          Objective To understand the non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) behavior among Mongolian college students and its relations with depression and anxiety, and to provide reference for mental health prevention and intervention.

          Methods In April 2019, a stratified cluster sampling method was used to select 8 422 Mongolian college students from 5 colleges and universities in Hohhot. NSSI, depression and anxiety were collected.

          Results The proportion of NSSI, anxiety and depressive symptoms among Mongolian college students were 22.94%, 11.11%, and 28.57%, respectively. Male, non-medical major, introverted personality, and family disharmony were associated with higher detection rates of NSSI (χ 2 = 9.20, 100.14, 60.71, 53.05, P < 0.01). The detection rate of anxiety among students in the fourth grade, non-medical majors, introverted personality, and disharmonious family was significantly higher compared to peers (χ 2 = 28.45, 92.88, 60.22, 66.10, P < 0.01). The detection rate of depression among students in the fourth grade, non-medical major, introverted personality, and discordant parental relationships was higher (χ 2 = 57. 06, 58.45, 108.88, 136.30, P < 0.01). Logistic regression analysis showed that depression ( OR = 1.47, 95% CI = 1.31-1.67), anxiety ( OR = 2.83, 95% CI = 2.45-3.29) were positively correlated with the risk of NSSI ( P < 0.01).

          Conclusion Non-suicidal self-injury behavior, depression and anxiety in Mongolian college students is high, and there are significant positive correlations between NSSI with depression and anxiety. Mental health education and intervention among college Mongolian students should be paid colse attention.
