Abstract

Mental health education plays a very important role in the future development of secondary school students. Integrating the concept of positive psychology in secondary school students' mental health education helps secondary school students learn to use their own positive psychological factors to stimulate and cultivate their own potential, mobilize the initiative of learning, and promote the progress of learning and the improvement of comprehensive literacy. Starting from the current situation of secondary school mental health education, we analyze the guiding significance of the positive psychology concept to secondary school mental health education and propose the integration path in light of the current practical problems.
