The webinars are designed to provide policy makers and the wider health community with the latest evidence on the impact of COVID-19 on mental health, and practical solutions to the challenging issues we are all grappling with. Participants are encouraged to join from around the world, including those with lived experience of mental health and of COVID-19. The format is short remarks by up to 4 panellists followed by a Q&A chaired by Niall Boyce, Editor of The Lancet Psychiatry.

After almost four months of our weekly webinar series on mental health and COVID-19, the increasing interest in broader global mental health issues means we are reshaping this series. The webinars will pause for the first two weeks of August, starting again on the 18th August, where we will continue to look at the most pressing and often neglected issues of mental health around the world.
This series of weekly webinars is run by United for Global Mental Health, The Lancet Psychiatry, Mental Health Innovation Network, and MHPSS.net.
