MEDLI Fall Meeting 2022

The Pandemic’s Impact on Mental Health

When: Tuesday, November 29, 2022 | 2.00 PM – 3.00 PM

Location: Zoom Meeting (Hosted by NCLA)

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant influence on mental health. Much has been extremely detrimental, including a steep rise in mental health diagnoses across all demographics. For example, here on Long Island we have seen reports of rising adolescent depression worsened by the pandemic. However, the pandemic’s impact has also led to a new understanding of mental health, its relationship to physical health, its significance in our society, and the need to offer more practical and transparent solutions.
