The perspective of the “petals” of personal health have never disappeared from the field of view of psychological science and practice. In modern stressful situations of being, it is the emotional component of health which is actualized through an increase of the emotional pressure on all aspects of life of a person. This is especially true for the period of early adulthood, when stressors that have age-related origin are also added to the urgent challenges of our time. Defining the structural-component elements of the phenomenon, that is of the emotional health of students, which does not make it possible to determine its scientific and practical foundations. This negatively affects the students' ability of selfknowledge, self-preservation, self-renewal and self-enrichment of their own emotional health, and the development of a positively active attitude towards the indicated personality feature. As a result of the analytical work, based on the scientific research foundation of the problem, a number of assumptions, which directed the research position, concerning meaningful content of the concept “emotional health”, regulatory and adaptive functions and the self-value of emotional health regarding students in the “individual-subject-personality - individuality” has been detailed. On this background, the author’s position, regarding the interpretation of the basic concept, structural identity, component constitution and measurements of the emotional health of an individual in early adulthood, has been justified. This involves an internally determined phenomenon, which, under appropriate conditions of educational and professional activity, can be transformed into an object of cognition, evaluation, and restoration by an individual. The expediency in the emotional health of a student to distinguish axiological, cognitive-affective, constant-instrumental and social-empathic components, which are caused by internal and external factors has been proved. The above mentioned statement expands scientific ideas about the emotional health of modern students, actualizing the need for practice-oriented activities in the current conditions of the notable negative impact of stress factors combination.
