Well, the easy way is to just change the trigger to
* *: mental

That however presumes the : is always present after the name of whomever is activating the trigger.

You need to make the trigger a bit more specific, eg.

Match: [*] *: mental

By putting the ":" into the trigger match text it stops it becoming part of the wildcard.
