Experts Warn of Urgent Need for COVID-19 Mental Health Research


From CNN: “In a paper published Wednesday in the Lancet Psychiatry journal, researchers called for better monitoring of mental health as part of the global response to the pandemic. The outbreak has infected more than 2 million people and killed over 128,000 worldwide, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

The paper, which draws on the work of 24 mental health experts, including neuroscientists, psychiatrists, psychologists and public health experts, also noted that little is known about the impact of Covid-19 itself on the human nervous system.”

  1. How is it that the so called “experts” – “experts,” who shouldn’t, but do claim to know nothing about the adverse and withdrawal effects of the drugs they prescribe – can even be called “experts”?

    But I will say those so called “mental health experts” are very competent at always calling for more research funds. Despite the fact their DSM “bible,” and all the “mental illnesses” listed with in it, were debunked as “invalid” in 2013.
