With the continuous development of urbanization and aging, the rate of empty-nest old man in rural areas in China continues to rise. Due to the “Healthy China” strategy proposed by the 19th CPC National Congress and the changing family structure in rural areas, the vulnerable elders in rural vulnerable population have been placed in a prominent place. It is urgent to solve mental pension for the elderly in the countryside. On the basis of comprehensively understanding the connotation of mental support, we analyzed the data from the 2012 Renmin University of China. The factors influencing the mental pension of rural empty-nest old men were divided into three categories and 19 types. We deeply summarized the impact of different factors on the mental pension of rural empty-nest old men.
