Purpose: This paper introduces a unique approach to teaching internships that is grounded in mental health theory. Moreover, this research investigated the instructional approaches of innovative internships in vocational colleges, drawing on mental health theory. Design/methodology/approach: The study group's students receive internship management along with mental health support, whereas the control group's students receive traditional instructional methods. ANOVA, chi-square test, and logistic regression analysis are employed to assess the academic performance of the students. In conclusion, a comprehensive assessment of the performance of the proposed model is carried out and subsequently compared with existing models. The findings of this investigation are visually represented using the Origin software. Findings: The research revealed that both government initiatives and individual requirements exert influence on the pedagogy of internships in China. In this proposal, we present a vocational education and mental health theory model that prioritises a "student-centered" teaching methodology. Mental health is a non-cognitive factor that exerts a significant influence on educational achievements. The potential efficacy of the internship teaching model could be enhanced by incorporating considerations for mental health. Originality/value: The study placed significant emphasis on a novel theoretical framework rooted in mental health theory. This study has made a significant contribution to the development of the new educational model. The progress of education is facilitated by the presence of student motivation and the cultivation of efficient learning strategies. Enhancing the efficacy of teaching can be achieved by incorporating the consideration of students' mental health within the framework of educational reform. The integration of mental health education into a diverse range of classroom activities has been found to yield the most favourable outcomes for students.
