In Russia, the number of visits by patients with anxiety and depressive disorders during the pandemic has increased. The growth was 10-30% depending on the region.

As the Kommersant, most often Russians complain about fear of getting sick, stressful conditions, panic attacks and suicidal thoughts. Women go to doctors with such problems much more often than men - almost 75%. The age of those who go to psychiatrists and psychologists varies from 29 to 50 years.

The Ministry of Health of Primorye reported that in 2020, 126 thousand visits were registered in the dispensary department of the regional clinical psychiatric hospital, which is 10% more than a year earlier. Every fifth request related to mental and neurotic disorders due to coronavirus.

Doctors from other regions of Russia also reported an increase in the number of visits.
