Abstract

War is one of the greatest atrocities, with serious consequences for both the belligerent and
non-belligerent sides. The consequences of a war, at least on a mental level, are very shocking and
involve actors of all kinds, starting with people, fauna, flora, the environment and the whole ecosystem.
In the context of the war scenery on the Ukraine-Russia front, the concept of trauma is directly
correlated with various mental illnesses in the field of anxiety disorders, depression and even chronic
stress. The lack of positive, definite predictions feeds even more the chaos of anxiety correlated with
the depression generated by the contextual situation. New gloomy horizons are expected in the realm
of affective disorders, either of an anxious or depressive nature, which will require the attention of
mental health specialists, being asked to face a new pandemic “wave”, this time the virus showing
“mutations” at geopolitical.level.
