November 30, 2021 1646

The many impacts the pandemic has had on children, adolescents, and adults, including those diagnosed with a mental illness before the pandemic started, have highlighted the value of the science of mental health and its application.

In this free hourlong webinar, part of the Association for Psychological Science’s Global Collaboration on COVID-19, you’ll hear from four expert psychological scientists who will report primary data and review the emerging literature on COVID-19 and its effects on mental health and illness.
