Mental health is still a relatively new concern, in recent years there has been a shift toward a more socially acceptable attitude toward discussing it. Concerns about college students’ mental health are the subject of an ever-expanding body of research, which is currently being conducted in increasing numbers. The purpose was to assess the mental health status and the academic performance of students in a Higher Education Institution (HEI) specifically in Santiago City, Isabela, Philippines for proper interventions to succeed in their studies. A descriptive cross-sectional survey design was used in the study and the analytical sample used was purposive sampling which was composed of 356 respondents. Data was collected using the General Health Questionnaire-28 (GHQ-28). The result revealed a significant relationship between mental status and academic performance in terms of age and gender. The study concludes that mental health awareness is a necessity, especially for college students to succeed in their chosen careers.
