Mental health education (MHE) in universities has achieved initial results after nearly 20 years of comprehensive development. In the new era, the basic task of moral education requires higher and deeper education objectives and effects of MHE in universities. This paper mainly studies the combination strategy of ideological and political education (IPE) and MHE for universities students. This paper studies the status quo of MHE in IPE in universities by using questionnaires. Through the investigation, it is found that the application effect of MHE in IPE in universities is not good, and the two education ideas, education methods, education content are still in their own independent status quo. According to the above survey results, how to effectively apply MHE to IPE has been actively explored, so that MHE can be truly integrated into the IPE in universities, to improve the effectiveness of IPE to make a positive contribution.
