Basic military training consists of highly regimented training in the context of fairly extreme psychosocial stressors, and some recruits suffered from rigorous disturbance in mind. Even if practical measures which include instructive psychological intervention have been taken to ameliorate the disturbance, some questions still have not been settled in our practical work for recruits. For example, what are the manifestations of psychological problems for recruits? What is the difference of the psychological problems at different stages during the training? A perspective investigation was found that emotion disturbances before the training and somatic symptoms at the end of the 1st month of training are remarkable, which can be viewed as, if needed, target symptoms in the psychological intervention. While recruits got more objective social supports in the later training and their sleep status had not shown significant change during the military training. Based on the investigations, we also submitted our suggestion to mental health intervention for recruits, and this may be helpful for health education in the army.
