Many of the various mental pathologies afflicting mankind in modern society require more detailed research. One of the directions requiring additional studying is that of spatial perception in mental patients. The main purpose of the study was to investigate the role of spatial perception in mental health disorders using the coefficient of perspective expansion. Methods and subjects: To carry out this study, a series of experiments were conducted using the graphic test for drawing a cube at various distances from an object. After that, the coefficient of perspective expansion was calculated. Patients from the regional psychiatric hospital with the prevailing diagnosis of schizophrenia were the subjects of the research. The data showed the dependence of the coefficient value to the patient’s mental and emotional state, more so than their intelligence.
