Iraq witnessed a new phenomenon, thousands of young demonstrates were flooding streets of Baghdad, chanting their poignant trademark slogan "Nureedwaten". In Iraq, a little research was focusing on mental health. No published data on mental health of protestors. A total of 460 protesters from Al-Tahrir square (center of Baghdad, Iraq) was included in this study. The collective action offers participants a place to reassess their perception. The changes might affect relationships, work-life, extended involvement, consumer behavior, radicalization / politicization, legitimacy, self- assessment / self-confidence, well-being, knowledge, level of activity …etc., which in turn affect positively mental health.
