Abstract: In the process of entrepreneurship, values of entrepreneurs have a certain impact on their mental health. This paper investigated 1855 college entrepreneurs from 36 universities through questionnaires, empirically tested the connection between their values and mental health, and verified whether entrepreneurship education had a moderating effect. According to the survey, there is a significant correlation between profit-oriented value and mental health, and there is a weak correlation between satisfaction customer-oriented and social-service oriented value and mental health. Entrepreneurship education has a significant regulating effect on the profit-oriented value, but has no significant regulating effect on the satisfaction of the customer-oriented and the social-service oriented value.

Key words: innovation and entrepreneurship education, college students, values, mental health
