Abstract

Urbanization is such a process that it leads to the growth of cities related to industrial and economic development. It also causes some changes in labor division and human behaviors. Besides, urbanization may cause problems such as stressful life events, poor social network, and rapid growth of cities because of immigration. All of these factors may negatively affect mental health which makes it a prominent process that should not be neglected. The aim of this was to review the difficulties stemming from urbanization -an important problem for both urban people and immigrants- and its negative impacts on mental health.
