Sign up for our monthly newsletters to connect with others and learn about current research on COVID-19 and mental health.
We have a full newsletter to share with you this month! Below you'll learn about our efforts to more widely share findings from researchers in our Network and about the activities of our special interest groups. We also feature Dr Anna Hood from the University of Manchester who discusses her study focusing on people with chronic illnesses.
As we head towards the close of 2021, we at COVID-MINDS want to wish you a festive and restful holiday. We will see you in 2022 when we will bring together your views and research on the main impact of the pandemic on mental health across the globe, how we manage the psychological consequences of COVID-19 moving forward, and how we can prepare for future crises.
This month, we introduce the newest members of our network, highlight the latest longitudinal research on the impact of the pandemic on mental health, and list resources, conferences and opportunities for the mental health research community. We also feature COVID-MINDS member Dr Praveetha Patalay from University College London.
This month, we feature Dr Ola Demkowicz and Dr Margarita Panayiotou, Lecturers at the Manchester Institute of Education. In April, they and a team of mental health researchers wrote an article on how the speed of research on mental health and COVID-19 may have compromised the quality of the response.
This month, we look at how pregnant women have responded in the last year and how young people continue to face specific challenges alongside social distancing and isolation. We also emphasise the importance of increasing research in low- and middle-income countries where the pandemic’s effects on mental health may be long-lasting.
