Coronavirus and mental health

The effect of the pandemic on mental health is already significant and continues to grow. Reports show that people are experiencing higher rates of anxiety and other mental health conditions. In order to build a more accurate picture of what we are dealing with, we have brought together a collection of high-quality, ethically reviewed studies on mental health and the coronavirus.

You can help by taking part in these studies online. This will help us learn how best to intervene to help people right now, and importantly, to map out and address the long-term mental health implications of the pandemic.

The significant mental health impact of the coronavirus and the world-wide lockdown require an urgent research response.  The world is rightly focused on measures to stop the spread of the virus, protect the most vulnerable, along with research to develop a vaccine.  But it is vital that mental health and neuroscience forms part of all aspects of the research response to Covid-19. Find out what MQ Mental Health are doing about this.

We know that the mental health impacts of the coronavirus pandemic will be significant for us all – for those with existing mental health conditions and for everyone affected by stress, anxiety, isolation, loneliness, family pressure and financial hardship.To help with this, we've put together a list of resources for you.
