The impact of COVID-19 extends beyond its effect on physical health; the resulting changes in behavioral patterns and day-to-day functioning, together with tremendous healthcare and economic impact, is placing significant stress on mental health for people around the world. Data shows that large-scale disasters are almost always accompanied by increases in depression, PTSD, substance abuse and a broad range of other mental and behavioral disorders. It is important to recognize and mitigate the mental health epidemic that will almost certainly follow the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join this panel of mental health, advocacy and policy experts to discuss the actions that must be undertaken to advance prevention-focused mental health care and resilience as we go through and emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the importance of advocacy in mental health.
