The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has become a huge threat all over the world as a pandemic, and many countries are currently experiencing the second or third wave of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, which also leads to mental health problems of different groups including students. There have been several studies from some countries reporting quite high proportions of students developing mental health problems during COVID-19 pandemic. However, there is still limited data on this important topic. Specifically, compared to the studies examining the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on students’ mental health from a self-report perspective, the studies examining the differential impact of the pandemic on students’ mental health from more methods and perspectives are relatively limited. In addition, the precise mechanism of the influence of COVID-19 on students’ mental health is unknown. Therefore, additional efforts and multidisciplinary studies are needed to elucidate these issues.

The goal of this Research Topic is mainly to highlight the effect that changes of learning conditions (e.g., from offline to online) and students’ life (e.g., from being unconstrained to isolated) have had on the mental health of students due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 in general. Furthermore, we also aim to illustrate the diverse ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic affects the mental health of students. Finally, we want to explore the role of family and society in influencing the mental health of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Research Topic is to encourage the laboratory, epidemiological and modeling studies on the potential interactions between COVID-19 pandemic and mental health of students, at both the individual and population levels. We aim at inviting theoretical and empirical contributions exploring the consequences of COVID-19 on the mental health of students from psychological scales, behavioral experiments, physiological measurements or an integrative approach and perspective. We welcome Original Research studies and Topic-relevant Literature Reviews including(but not limited to)the following subtopics:
- The cognitive bias, emotional disorders and deviant behaviors of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The effects of changes in educational settings on the mental health of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The effect of online learning on the mental health of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The effect of problematic smartphone uses on the mental health of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The influence of COVID-19 pandemic on students' peer relationship.
- The role of family and society in influencing the mental health of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Interventions of mental health of students related to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Keywords: Student Mental Health, COVID-19, Psychometrics, Cognitive Bias, Emotion Disorder, Deviant Behavior
