The COPE Series [Challenges and Opportunities in a Pandemic Era]

The COVID-19 pandemic, and resulting economic downturn, have negatively affected many people’s mental health. We, as a community, have to act now to address the mental health challenges happening during the pandemic to avoid long term consequences in the future.
