Abstract: 
The purpose of this study was to compare the athlete and nonathlete students stressors and their relationship with their mental health. 273 male and female athletes and 147 male and female nonathletes by staged random sampling were selected as samples of this study. Two scales, the students stressors questionnaire (SSQ) and symptom checklist-25 (SCI-25) were used to test the proposed hypotheses. The reliability and Validity of these two instruments are reported to be significant in various studies. Testing the proposed hypotheses at the P<.05 showed the following results: No significant difference was reported between female and male athlete and non-athlete students in their responses to the stressors. Significant differences were reported between athletes and nonathletes in their responses to dormitory stressors. The comparison between male athlete and non-athletes stressores and their mental health did not show a significant difference at P<.05. There was a positive and significant relationship between female and male athlete stressors with their mental health, but this relationship was significant for male non-athletes and was not significant for female non-athlete. A multi-comparison between stressors and mental health showed that two factors (academic setting and living in dormitory) were considered to be better predictors of men athletes mental health. But factors like graduation and living in dormitory were better predictors of women athletes mental health. Therefore, it is recommended that universities and scientific organizations prepare suitable conditions for continuing education, academic setting and living in dormitory in order to reduce the students stressors and increase mental health of them.
