Abstract: Despite many theories and scientist working at children’s mental health, it is still getting worse every year. This current hypothesis is that there are other factors that influence child‘s emotional and behavioral problems (EBP). There is some evidence that one of these factors could be exposure to environmental pollutants. The main research question was what are the main factors of environment pollution which influence child’s EBP. The aim of this paper is to highlight the main environment pollution factors influencing children EBP. Methods:Papers published from 2002 onwards were revied with regard to scientific context. Findings:The main environment pollution factors, influencing child’s EPB, are heavy metals, air pollution, noice and prenatal ETS exposure. Discussion:There are many preventive programs regarding social and psychological child’s environment. This paper suggests that public health policies have to be pointed to systematical programs regulating environment pollution impact on child’s mental health
