The provision of mental care for patients who visit primary healthcare facilities is the topic of this article. The authors examine the data that demonstrate a consistent decline in this type of care's accessibility in recent years in both Tashkent and Uzbekistan. The authors describe the findings of an investigation, which demonstrate that patients at territorial general polyclinics have a sizable need for psychotherapy (psychiatric) care. The authors also suggest strategies for the growth of this type of care.
