The present paper investigates and compares the relationship of attachment styles with mental health of the students of Pardis of Shahid Modarres, Sanandaj. The study is aimed at testing the main hypothesis that there is a relationship between attachment styles and mental health. Based on reviewing the available theoretical foundations relevant to the research variables as well as the related studies, to answer the research questions, 100 students were randomly selected from the statistical population of the students in Pardis of Shahid Modarres, Sanandaj (to control the quality of the effect of culture on these variables, the students were selected from all strata). To collect the data, Collins, NL and Read’s attachment styles and Goldberg’s mental health questionnaires were employed. The statistical data was analyzed by descriptive statistical methods. The results show that there is a direct relationship between attachment styles and mental health and the dependence subscale has the highest correlation coefficient.
