Professor Yuri Sivolap: The state of stress and constant anxiety requires medical attention
The level of anxiety among Russians has increased significantly over the past year - online psychotherapy services have noted an increase in the number of clients making inquiries about anxiety and stress. According to a study by the NAFI Analytical Center, in 2022, 70% of Russians experienced anxiety and stress due to the current socio-economic situation. In addition, the emotional state of the population, according to surveys, continued to be affected by the coronavirus epidemic, difficulties in studying or working, changing seasons and tension in society. All this raised the demand for antidepressants and drugs that have a calming effect.
