In recent years, incidents such as jumping off buildings caused by mental health issues among college students have been reported, which is heartbreaking. College students are the talent reserve for various national undertakings and the future pillars of the country. If college students experience widespread psychological problems such as anxiety, it will have a negative impact on the country. Through analyzing existing data, we found that a considerable number of college students believe that an important factor causing psychological problems is family issues, with parental psychological control being the main issue. This study uses case analysis as the starting point to explore the major culprit of college students' psychological problems - anxiety, as well as the underlying family issues. The objective of the study is to investigate the family causes behind anxiety among college students, in order to better address their mental health issues. The research results indicate that strong psychological control by parents, especially in families, can easily lead to parent-child conflicts and deepen the spread of anxiety among college students.
