The article addresses to an empirical study of the dynamics of psycho-emotional states and self-regulation of students and graduates of higher educational institutions during the first 4 months of the introduction of martial law in Ukraine in the context of studying the possibilities of strengthening psycho-emotional health.

The research proved that the psycho-emotional state and indicators of self-regulation significantly worsened among student youth. The results of anxiety diagnostics showed that the dynamics of indicators of high and very high level among the respondents under study is increasing. The dynamics of indicators of a low level of anxiety decreases in the direction of an increase of a high level. A comparative analysis of the experiences of the studied students proved that anxiety and frustration, excitement and anxiety, tension and irritation, aggression, etc., were typical for the interviewees. Students pointed out the subjection to feelings, tendency to mood lability, fatigue, deterioration of sleep quality, disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular and nervous systems, exacerbation of chronic diseases, occurrence of depressive states.

Scientific novelty. The conducted research made it possible to reveal the peculiarities of the psycho-emotional health of students and the dynamics of emotional states and components of self-regulation during the 2-19 weeks of the introduction of martial law in Ukraine.

Conclusions. The results of the study showed that the events currently taking place in Ukraine have a psychologically traumatic effect on every Ukrainian. This especially affects students of mature juvenile age. The necessity of developing ways and means of providing psychological assistance and personal support is proven to be important, also as conducting mental and emotionally volitional self-regulation training for students in order to improve general well-being and strengthen psycho-emotional health as a personal resource.

Key words: psycho-emotional health, anxiety, worry, self-regulation, emotional stability, students of higher education.
