The new Clinic that meets the modern standards will be constructed in the place of the old psychiatry hospital of one-storeyed. The Psychiatrist noted that, two big psychiatry hospitals in Baku are in bad conditions:"No psychiatry problem was said to be in former Soviet period. That was why the construction of psychiatry clinics was not included to the plan."

The construction of Psychiatry hospitals in the regions is not considered yet. A.Sultanov considers the Psychiatry hospitals in the regions to be in better conditions than the ones in Baku.

As for the statistics of the mentally sick people, the psychiatric stated that, 1-3% of the population in Azerbaijan is mentally sick as it is in the whole world. This number rises to 3%, sometimes declines to 1%:"Today, their numbers have increased. It is due to the life getting harder, decrease of the communication of people. That is why the people fell lonely. Loneliness always drives to neurosis."

A.Sultanov also added, the number of suicides has increased in Azerbaijan. If 2-3 persons committed suicides before, now the number has increased a little bit./APA/
