Effective and rapid psychological crisis evaluation under emergency is the basis to carry out psychological crisis intervention. In this paper, based on existing research, an index system to evaluate the state of psychological cri-sis is established and the index system is simplified by the model combining factor analysis and neural networks. Experiments illustrate that the training times, training time and maximum error of the combination model are 1445, 20.476 (s), 0.0011 respectively while the general neural networks are 5581, 115.610 (s), 0.0090 with 92 samples and the final diagnosis by the combination model are also exact.
