Refugee or asylum seeker; thus, people who are persecuted because of their faith, ethnicity, association with a certain social group or political ideas wish to return, unwilling or unable, because of the fear of leaving their country, and their fears are justified by the asylum country.Children are the ones who suffer the most from this bad experience and have the most difficulty in adapting to the new countries they go to. The events they witnessed, the humiliations they were subjected to, and the kinds of psychological and physical violence caused great damage to their mental health.There are so many variables that impact children's mental health. These key factors are: Exposure to abuse, physical, psychological, or developmental disabilities, age and sex, education, family functioning and parental health, parental education, socioeconomic circumstances of households, social support and group integration, ideological and religious backgrounds, ethnic origin.  In this study, the problems experienced by refugees in general (education, unemployment, economic problems and mental health ), the sensitivity of children about mental health, studies on this issue and their ideas about improving this problem are discussed.
