The purpose of this study is to investigate the significant structural relationship of variables at the level of micro-analysis resulting from interactions of comfort-based security, peace of mind based on collective elements such as coherence, adaptation, participation, acceptance and prosperity. In the methodology of quantitative method based on survey (description and correlation) of 20 to 40 year old youth of Gonabad with a sample size of 400 people based on Cochran's formula and simple random sampling method based on standardized questionnaire (social health) and researcher (Feeling of Security) has been measured and analyzed. The hypothesis of social health and its components (coherence, acceptance, cohesion, contribution, and actualization, respectively) had a significant relationship with moderate and positive severity other than the feeling of security. Based on the results of the structural equation, the combined reliability criteria of 0.7 and the convergence validity above 0.5 are obtained, which indicates the appropriate reliability of the model. According to the significance coefficient of Z (T-value) at the 95% confidence level and the values of the R Square or R2 criterion table in order to fit the model, it indicates the effect of value (0.207) and based on the final value of Q2 criterion in terms of predictive power with value. (0.15) indicates that the effect of variables and components in the structural model is moderate. As a result, social health as a necessary variable in the medium to high level, relying on planning and systematization by relevant institutions and organizations can lead to improving the capability of security components.
