          Abstract

          Objective Understanding mental health status of students with learning disabilities in Beijing to provide a basis for mental health promotion of students with learning disabilities.

          Methods By means of random cluster sampling, 5 787 enrolled students in grade one and grade two of 11 public junior middle schools in Beijing were selected as the survey subjects. A self- designed questionnaire was used to investigate the students’ learning disabilities and mental health status through anonymous self- filling.

          Results About 11.6% students self-reported learning disabilities. The proportions of students with learning difficulty in mathematical reasoning and calculation were higher, 44.1% and 40.7% respectively. The reported rate of mental health problems was 38.3%. The top four of the 10 symptoms were obsessive-compulsive symptoms, learning pressure, emotional instability and anxiety (2.19±0.77) (2.17±0.99) (2.09 ± 0.90) (2.07± 1.08). Compared with students without learning disabilities, students with self-reported learning disabilities had poorer mental health status ( OR = 1.47), and learning disabilities were related to most factors of mental health. Different types of learning disabilities were associated with different mental health factors.

          Conclusion Mental health problems of students with learning disabilities are higher than that of students without learning disabilities. It is necessary to strengthen the mental health support for students with learning disabilities and improve their mental health.
