The present work was a cross-sectional study performed on all registered students of war sacrifices and martyrs. The GHQ-28 questionnaire was used and a score of 23 considered as cut off point for general scale. The data showed that 28.6% of students under the study were suspected of having mental disorder. When the data were calculated for individual universities, the rates obtained for Zanjan, Arak and Qazvin universities were 40.7%, 26.8% and 25.6% respectively.
