    Dear, IQ and mental health are related. IQ is directly proportional to experience and general awareness, abilities, skills etc. Mental health is purely mental hygiene. Whe mental hygiene is low, naturally the grasping and perception power reduces which affects the overall IQ in long and medium term. There may not be any change in the short term. The situations you have given here do affect the mental health and therefore IQ is also affected.
