Mental health was defined in 1999 1 then 2004 2. The complete mental health was recently called flourishing3 (low perceived control in life, highest level of functioning goals, resilience, and intimacy). Activism is using vigorous campaigning to bring about political and social change.4 In Iraq, antigovernmental rallies surged ramping up their sit-ins to pressure authorities for long waited reforms. They were chanting their poignant trademark slogan “Nureed watan” i.e., we want a homeland. Activists (protesters) were facing intensifying campaign of kidnapping and killing.5 Protests prove the power of collective activity. It is similar to collective actions occurred in the world e.g., riots in London 2011 and 2017 6 in Spain (Indignados) as a reaction to global economic crisis.7 A little research was focusing on mental health of adolescents. Publishing data on the new phenomenon of protesting are scares, which was the impetus to carry out this study to comment on the mental health of activist’s changes.
