Mental Health Resources: COVID-19

Mental health resources: COVID-19

Citizens around the world are monitoring the evolving impact of COVID-19. This crisis is putting great strain on people’s lives, and we are increasingly witnessing its impact on the mental health of our patients, our communities, and ourselves.

We recognize the value of Columbia’s Global Mental Health community as a means of sharing information about COVID-19 and the mental health consequences of this pandemic. One of the challenges at the moment is securing accurate and relevant information. We are sharing with you information from the World Health Organization and other trusted sources across WHO member nations that we hope you will find useful and share with others.
