Mental Health in the Time of COVID-19

January 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Michelle A. Williams, Dean of the Faculty at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is pleased to present

Moderated by Jane Pauley, Anchor, CBS News “Sunday Morning”

#NotAlone

Presented with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)

Hosted by The Forum at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

The country’s mental health crisis has only been intensified by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Ever-increasing numbers of deaths and illness, accompanied by economic fears and racial tensions, have made for a grim picture. During this time of unprecedented crisis, everyone is suffering, but Black, Latinx and Indigenous populations, frontline workers, and young people face disproportionate mental health risks. This one-hour event will shine a light on the often-hidden mental trauma of the coronavirus pandemic and explore ways to move forward.
