Abstract

This article presents a systematic review on the relationships between mental well-being and academic performance in university students. The primary aim is to elucidate how different mental health states can influence academic achievement and vice versa. Through the review of existing literature, it was identified that an optimal mental health state fosters skills such as concentration, stress management, and adaptability, all essential for good academic performance. Conversely, stressful academic environments can contribute to mental health issues, highlighting the responsibility of educational institutions in providing an environment conducive to the holistic well-being of their students. The importance of training and raising awareness among academic and administrative staff for early detection and appropriate response to mental health issues was emphasized. Multifaceted interventions that address both mental well-being and academic performance were found to be particularly effective. In conclusion, this study underscores the need to adopt a holistic approach in higher education.
