Abstract

Background and Aims: Medical school can be a period of a high stress and deterioration for students’ mental health. Our cross-sectional study assesses the impact of stress on the formation of dependencies in the students of different programs: the general medicine faculty , law and economics and finances faculty students Methods: 170 students: 64 medical, 31 economics and finance faculty, 75 law. PHQ, PHQ-9, STAI, Mental status examination, habits and their attitude to smoking, drinking and using recreational drugs questioner. Results: More than a half of the surveyed students 73% (n=124) presented minimal and mild level of depression, 14% (n=25) presented moderate depression level, 6% (n=10) and 4% (n=6) have shown the level of moderately severe depression and severe depression symptoms respectively. There are 17% (n=30) who suffer from major depressive symptom, among them there are 56% (n=17) medical students, 37% (n=11) law, 7% (n=2) economics and finance. There are almost the same number 19% (n=33) who showed signs of other depressive syndromes. Panic syndrome affects 12% (n=20) of students. Other anxiety syndrome affects overall of 8%(n=14). 5% (n=9) show signs of bulimia nervosa, Binge eating disorder in total 7% (n=12) and 7% (n=12) are suffering from alcohol abuse. Conclusions: Medical students are more affected by depressive disorders (p<0.05), while law and economics develop anxiety and panic disorders. Academic overload which medical students are more exposed to comparing to others can be one of the triggers of the developing symptoms. The presence of any affective disorder helps to acquire bad drinking habits while studying.
