Covid and Mental Health

Our COVID and Mental Health project launched in spring of 2020 as COVID-19 emerged as a global pandemic.

This work contributed timely evidence and informed various governments, healthcare organizations and communities as they worked to strengthen mental health responses during this unprecedented time.
