The COVID-19 pandemic, like other traumatic events, can have a substantial impact on the mental health of populations. This mental health response is shaped both by the disease itself and by its economic and social consequences. It can shape mental health for months and years to come, long after the pandemic has passed. This Boston University School of Public Health seminar will discuss the state-of-the-science about mental health after large scale events and potential approaches to mitigate adverse mental health consequences.
