Abstract

Psychiatric work in Russia today is organized somewhat along the lines of public health work in this country. In each community there is a district psychiatrist who is responsible for the mental health of his districtThe most marked point of difference between psychiatry in Russia and in other countries is that a greater attempt is made, by an adjustment of working conditions, to adapt the environment to the patient.With respect to the types of mental disease and the basic psychopathic manifestations, there do not appear to exist any differences between Russia and other countries. The Soviet régimehas brought about a change in the content of mental symptoms, but there is no evidence that it has either decreased the incidence of mental disease or altered the basic forms of mental disease.
