          Objective To investigate mental health and its associated factors in college students during COVID-19 confinement in campus, and to provide a scientific basis for mental health education.

          Methods A general questionnaire, the Patient Health Questionnaire 9 (PHQ-9) and the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7) were administered. A total of 1 816 college students under COVID-19 confinement in campus in Lanzhou City were surveyed from October 18 to November 18, 2021. Data were analyzed by using the ordinal Logistic regression method.

          Results The overall incidence of depressive emotions was 38.76%, and the incidences of mild, moderate to severe depression emotions were 31. 33% and 7. 43%, respectively. About 16. 36% of students showed anxiety, with mild, moderate to severe anxiety being 13.33% and 3.03%, respectively. Multivariate analysis showed that poverty ( OR = 1.29), daily schedule (basically normal OR = 0.33, normal OR = 0.18), adaptability of online learning (moderate adaptation OR = 0.45, high level of adaptation OR = 0.25), concerns about the infection of oneself and family members (some concerns OR = 1.73, considerable concerns OR = 2.09), male ( OR = 0.78), and the isolation mode ( OR =1.70). The music listening (sometimes OR = 0.44, often OR = 0.41), daily schedule (basically normal OR = 0.36, normal OR = 0.19), adaptability of online learning (moderate adaptation OR = 0.42, high level of adaptation OR = 0.28), and concerns about the infection of oneself and family members (some concerns OR = 1.87, considerable concerns OR = 3.27) were primary factors associated with high level of anxiety among college students ( P<0.05).

          Conclusion The incidence of depression and anxiety among college students increased following COVID-19 confinement and centralized isolation for medical observation in campus. Universities and relevant departments should take timely and precise measures for psychological counseling.
