The results obtained in this thesis show that the mental health (behavioural and development disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, and eating disorders) of children living in rural areas is affected by the composition of atmospheric pollution (PM10, CO2, SO2, O3, and CO) similarly to those living in urban areas.
