This talk will address the broader mental health issues in various communities and how the pandemic has exacerbated the mental health crisis. During the pandemic, many countries have established mental health divisions to support and cater to the needs of people. The Ministry of Public Health and Hamad Hospital set up Mental Health Infrastructure, which received nearly 36,000 calls and plans to expand further. The case is worse in conflict-ridden countries, where children and young adults were severely affected. We will also discuss the broader implications of the pandemic and post-pandemic world on mental health and how we need to address this growing crisis.
The event will be conducted online via Zoom.
