With the development of modern society, the mental health issues of chinese university students have received increasing attention. Mental health education courses have become an important part of ideological and political education in universities. However, there are limitations in the current approach. To address this issue, virtual reality (VR) technology can be employed to enhance university students' mental health education by integrating ideological and political education content. This integration aims to develop students' patriotism, national pride, and cultural confidence, while also strengthening their sense of responsibility, mission, and social responsibility. By incorporating VR technology into university mental health education, students can not only gain a better understanding of ideological and political theories but also improve their mental well-being. This innovative approach aligns with the vision of cultivating talents who are well-prepared for the challenges of the new era.
