The purpose of this study is to explore the impact of demographic characteristics, stress response, and learning needs on psychological health of middle-aged and elderly people. This study uses a questionnaire survey. The survey object is students participating in Taiwan adult education. Data processing and analysis are performed by statistical methods such as sex statistics, t-test, single factor variation analysis, and Pearson. The study found that: 1. Middle-aged and elderly people generally feel satisfied with stress response and learning needs; 2. On middle-aged and elderly people's learning needs, women, highly educated people, 45-49 years old, 55-59 years old, and 60 years old have more direct learning needs. Finally, based on the results of this study, several relevant suggestions are put forward for middle-aged and advanced learners and follow-up researchers for reference.
