Mental health education for graduate students is an important part of the training process in higher education institutions. Paying attention to the mental health status of graduate students, timely identification of issues, and provision of scientific psychological counseling are crucial tasks for graduate student advisors. In the process of addressing a case with multiple causal factors for a graduate student's psychological issues, a "three vertical and three horizontal" mechanism for investigating and tracking psychological problems was established. This method clarified a "1, 2, 3" approach to solving graduate students' mental health issues, contributing to the formation of a mental health education system for graduate students in higher education institutions, aiming to inspire advisors in carrying out mental health work with graduate students.
