Mental Health COVID

MHCOVID is a living online systematic review of scientific evidence about changes in the prevalence of mental health issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic and containment measures.

We take a global view, and seek to determine how the extent of containment measures are associated with mental health issues (including violent behaviour, and alcohol and substance abuse) in the general population, as well as various sub-populations. Our project makes use of crowdsourcing techniques to increase the quantity of evidence we can include in our analyses, and our results are continuously updated as more evidence becomes available.
