LIDC Research Seminar: How has Covid-19 affected our mental health?

With no end to lockdown restrictions in sight mental health is increasingly facing additional strain, particularly for those suffering mental health and anxiety-related issues even before lockdown restrictions led to higher levels of insecurity, isolation, anxiety and of course, ill health and bereavement.

On 14 January, Professor Sonia Johnson and Senior Research Fellow Luke Sheridan-Rains of University College London (UCL) will present to LIDC’s webinar on Covid-19 and mental health. They will discuss an evidence synthesis of early papers on the impact of the pandemic on mental health care. They will report on current investigations into tele-mental health approaches that were adopted before the pandemic and will look at whether these, and more recent innovations, have been effective since the pandemic was declared.  We invite you to be part of this timely and important conversation.

Please join us. More information and registration can be found here and in the news item below this email. (Please note that the Zoom link is booked from 12.30pm – this is for technical reasons. The seminar will start at 1pm.)
