Abstract: Objective To analyze the mental health status of patients with mild traumatic brain injury (MT-BI). Methods Using prospective comparative study, 110 patients with MTBI were selected as the subjects (the study group). One hundred healthy people were used as the control group. Symptom checklist 90 (SCL-90) was used to as-sess the mental health status. The results of the two groups were statistically analyzed. Results In the study group, the SCL-90 total score and the sub item scores of somatization, compulsion, depression and anxiety factor were signif-icantly higher than those in the control group (P<0.05). There were 55 cases (50.0%) of obvious anxiety and 63 cases (57.3%) of obvious depressive symptoms in the study group, 5 cases (5.0%) of obvious anxiety and 3 cases (3.0%) of obvious depressive symptoms in the control group, with statistically significant difference between the two groups (P<0.01). No significant difference was found in other items. Conclusion The patients of MTBI have more psychologi-cal problems, mainly depression and anxiety. Psychological intervention should be carried out in time.
