The idea of traditional mentoring is out of date because of newly emerging technology. Due to university closures and a lack of effective communication channels, the current COVID-19 situation more strongly supports the inclusion of e-mentoring. Students were dealing with a variety of mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as academic, social, emotional, and personal problems. The study investigates the need for e-mentoring among university students in Pakistan during covid-19. The study's sample size is 320 students, 160 male and 160 female, from eight universities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Data was collected using a specially designed questionnaire and analyzed using SPSS 22. The findings revealed that both male and female students felt a need for mentoring in all aspects of their lives, but female students felt a greater need than male students. Based on the findings, it was suggested that universities develop a proper e-mentoring plan for this type of situation. Parents may also establish a good rapport with their children to avoid him from mental health issues.
