CALL FOR PAPERS
COVID-19 Pandemic and Global Mental Health
Submit to this PLOS Medicine call for papers to contribute to the global awareness of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global mental health. Submission deadline, July 15th 2022.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic, just months after the first known cases were identified in December, 2019. Two years on, the world has been transformed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus: lockdowns and physical distancing have decimated social support structures for many, while loss of income, loneliness, disruptions in routine health care and reductions in physical activity have widened pre-existing health inequities. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, a hidden pandemic of mental health disorders is already underway.
PLOS Medicine is calling submissions that work with the potential to mitigate the mental health consequences of the current pandemic and strengthen the global response to future pandemics. Work that examines contextual differences in the mental health impacts of the pandemic and strives to elucidate underlying mechanisms is of great interest.
