Mental Health Aspects of the Covid-19 Crisis in Africa

About this webinar

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is leaving a myriad of unanswered questions in its wake - and many of these relate to the mental health of populations under lockdown, quarantine or self-isolation. The ill effects that this pandemic can have on the global mental health burden should not be underestimated - even more so in low-resource settings such as most countries on the African continent.

Join us on 14 April 2020 for a free webinar on the mental health aspects of the Covid-19 crisis in Africa. The four invited speakers will each present and will the participate in a panel discussion.
