COVID-19 AND MENTAL HEALTH
We are working to support the international community and our national partners to end the COVID-19 outbreak and build a stronger mental health system now, and for the future. We are raising the profile of mental health and calling on world leaders, national and global funders to invest now for the longer term, integrating mental health to ‘Build Back Better’.
We are helping the mental health community around the world to share information and learn what is working and what more is needed to support good mental health for all during the response to, and recovery from, COVID-19.
More than 1000 experts, business leaders, renowned scientists and those working on the frontline in mental health from over 40 countries have signed an Open Letter calling for action. The letter was developed by civil society leaders and advocates powered by the Speak Your Mind campaign.
The Lancet Psychiatry, Mental Health Innovation Network, MHPSS.net and United for Global Mental Health organise a series of weekly webinars designed to provide policy makers and the wider health community with the latest evidence on the impact of COVID-19 on mental health and how to address it. The aim is to provide practical solutions to the problems we all face.
