The effects of lockdown and Covid-19 itself could be deep and long-term. How do we mitigate the effects on Mental Health?
Professor Rory O'Connor has been conducting research into suicide and self-harm for over 20 years and now heads the Suicidal Behaviour Research Laboratory at Glasgow, the leading suicide and self-harm research group in Scotland.
In April Rory, was joint first author on a new paper, published in The Lancet Psychiatry, which highlights an urgent need to tackle the harmful impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health, and potentially the brain, and calls for research on these areas to be central to the global response to the pandemic.
The paper warns that the COVID-19 pandemic could have a ‘profound’ and ‘pervasive impact’ on global mental health now and in the future, yet a separate recent analysis shows that so far, only a tiny proportion of new scientific publications on COVID-19 have been on mental health impacts.
