About this event

The COVID-19 pandemic is posing a serious threat to mental health worldwide. The stress of infection risks, civil strife, social disruption, and economic insecurity is causing an increase in demand for mental health treatment. Evidence suggests that there is a considerable increase in mental health issues among the general population and vulnerable groups. Therefore, there is a need for mental health professionals to understand how to help their patients effected by pandemic more effectively and to prepare for future challenges in the post-pandemic era in conjunction with the large increase in mental health support that will be needed.

On Thursday June 17, 2021, at 9:30 EST Solve.Care will host the roundtable discussion “Are we ready for a mental health crisis post COVID-19?” to discuss the topic.
