COVID-19 and the Need for Action on Mental Health, a UN report, 13 May 2020

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

Although the COVID-19 crisis is, in the first
instance, a physical health crisis, it has the
seeds of a major mental health crisis as well,
if action is not taken. Good mental health is
critical to the functioning of society at the best
of times. It must be front and centre of every
country’s response to and recovery from the
COVID-19 pandemic. The mental health and
wellbeing of whole societies have been severely
impacted by this crisis and are a priority to be
addressed urgently.
