Within just over a week of the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring COVID-19 a global pandemic, the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) launched an online library of mental health resources related to the virus.
The library pulls together a range of tools, tips, updates and stories of how specialists around the world are supporting mental health during this time. Categorised by country and/or organisation of origin, the tools cover everything from support of frontline workers and medics to alleviating stress in children and adolescents as well as the broader community.
Resources includes PDFs, weblinks and webinars (among many others) and bring together in one location the myriad of information being developed by WPA member societies as well as many of its trusted partners. This "one-stop-shop" of global resources allows users to see how different countries, cultures and communities are addressing the mental health issues related to COVID-19 and can provide helpful information and inspiration for working within their own environments.
The library is updated with new information almost daily as WPA's global network share their most current learnings and experiences.
