World Mental Health Day is celebrated on October 10 each year, with the aim of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and supporting the importance of understanding mental health. This year, WHO's World Mental Health Day topic is "Mental Healh for All" which focuses on COVID-19 & Anxiety. COVID-19 (Corona Virus Pandemic) not only causes deaths from all corners of the world, but also has an impact on psychological disorders from the world community. When the Corona Virus spreads rapidly throughout the world, it also causes a high level of fear and worry in certain groups in particular, the elderly, people with comorbids and health workers. There are three psychological problems in the COVID-19 pandemic era, namely anxiety, depression, and psychological trauma. From 2364 respondents, 69% of them have psychological problems and 31% do not show any symptoms of psychological problems. In this study, it was found that women have a fairly high prevalence compared to men in terms of psychological problems in the COVID-19 era, which is around 72% (PDSKJI, 2020). Advances in medical science and technology made doctors in general and Mental Medicine Specialists in particular able to provide professional health services.
