Objectives: This study attempted to search out effects of family functioning on mental health of family members. Method: The study was carried out with 45 Afghan and Iranian immigrant families (father, mother and an adolescent between 15-20 years old) who had been Jiving in England. Data obtained from Standardized Clinical Family Interview (SCFI), General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) , Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales-III (FACE III) and Family Environment Scale (FES).

Findings: No significant difference was found on sum of family functioning rating between "Healthy" and "Distressed' families."Depressed" families showed less cohesion, adaptability and communication. In "Depressed' families, one of the parents exercised more authority over her/his family and parent - child coalitions were more common. Parents in "Depressed" families, were less consistent in child rearing. They were less satisfied with marital and parent/adolescent relationships than 'Healthy" and "Distressed' families.
