Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS), Trust in People (TIP) and self-designed demographic questionnaire were used to investigate depression of undergraduates in a university in ethnic area. The results showed that the depression rate was 35.7%. Gender, grade, discipline, place of residence, family structure, economic status, personality characteristics and family history of mental illness were significantly correlated with depression. It is suggested to pay close attention to the psychological status of undergraduates in ethnic areas and and carry out early intervention to promote their mental health.
