Abstract: 

In order to investigate the role of attachment styles, coping strategies, and mental health in internet addiction, 400 students (200 females, 200 males) were selected by cluster sampling method. The participants completed the Adult Attachment Questionnaire (Beshart, 2005), the Coping Strategies Questionnaire (Endler and Parker, 1990), the General Health Questionnaire (Goldberg, 1972), and the Internet Addiction Test (Young،1998). Findings indicated that 1) internet addiction had a negative relationship with problem solving coping strategy and positive relationships with emotional and avoidant coping strategies, 2) internet addiction correlated negatively with secure attachment styles, and positively with ambivalent and avoidant insecure attachment styles, 3) there was a significant positive relationship between internet addiction and low mental health, and 4) the attachment styles, coping strategies and mental health predicted internet addiction.
