Evidence Aid's February Bulletin: COVID-19 and mental health

16 February, 2024

Hello everyone,

Evidence Aid's latest bulletin is now available here: https://evidenceaid.org/evidence-aid-bulletin-15-february-2024/

Mental health is important for individuals to effectively manage life's challenges, contribute to society, and ensure one’s overall well-being (1). However, factors such as adverse circumstances and a lack of resources can increase the risk of mental health conditions (1). In this month's bulletin, we explore the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health, a crisis which sparked notable concerns about the increased prevalence of mental health issues on a global scale (2). Specifically, we will highlight summaries which examine the experiences of healthcare workers during the pandemic, including the heightened levels of depression and anxiety among medical professionals, as well as the broader impact on mental health in the general population.
