Mahasiswa Program Studi Sarjana Psikologi sebagai calon psikolog atau konselor diharapkan mampu merawat kesehatan mentalnya. E-Group Self-Care Art Box adalah terapi yang dimodifikasi dengan teknik online group art therapy untuk memberikan kesempatan bagi partisipan melakukan self-care. Penelitian ini bertujuan menguji efektivitas E-Group Self-Care Art Box Therapy dalam menurunkan depresi, kecemasan, dan stres mahasiswa. Sebanyak sepuluh orang partisipan dimasukkan ke dalam kelompok eksperimen dan kelompok kontrol. Teknik analisis menggunakan uji beda Wilcoxon dan theoretical coding. Hasil kuantitatif berupa adanya perbedaan yang signifikan terkait penurunan skor depresi; kecemasan; dan stres pada partisipan yang mendapatkan perlakuan dibandingkan dengan partisipan yang tidak mendapatkan perlakuan. Hasil kualitatif berupa temuan-temuan yang mengindikasikan personal growth dari para partisipan; dan para partisipan menyadari dukungan sosial yang dimiliki. Hasil penelitian ini diharapkan dapat mengingatkan para mahasiswa sarjana untuk dapat melakukan self-care secara rutin sebelum melanjutkan ke jenjang pendidikan berikutnya.
