**Abstract**
While a growing body of research has documented severe psychosocial consequences of the new Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) for the affected people, research mainly focused either on health care workers or the general population. There is a dearth of scientific research on the mental health status of recovered patients, especially in low- and middle-income countries. The purpose of the current study was to determine the mental health symptomatology and its associated factors among Iraqis who recovered from COVID-19. Participants were Iraqi Kurdish individuals who had previously been diagnosed with COVID-19 during the first wave of COVID-19, and they were recruited based on lists of recovered patients provided by from public health institutions. Using standardized demographic and mental health questionnaires, structured telephone interviews with 57 recovered patients were contacted. It was found that 31.6% of the participating recovered patients with COVID-19 met the diagnostic criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and 21.05% were classified with probable depression. Hospitalized survivors had higher PTSD and depression symptoms than those not hospitalized. We also found that higher levels of PTSD and depression symptoms were predicted by younger age, hospitalization due to COVID-19, and having a family member who died from COVID-19. In the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic, psychological and psychiatric treatment may be particularly relevant for younger adult patients and those with more severe COVID-19 symptoms who experienced hospitalized care.
