Understanding the extent of psychological and economic distress during the pandemic can inform the planning and provision of mental health and social support services in the near term as well as in post-pandemic recovery efforts. The COVID-19 Trends and Impact Survey (CTIS), launched by Facebook in partnership with the Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University in the United States and the University of Maryland Social Data Science Center globally, asks respondents a series of questions around wellness.
This webinar will provide descriptive statistics from different regions of the globe, present research findings looking at non-pharmaceutical COVID-19 interventions and their impact on wellness and present an established mental health approach that could be utilized by program implementers.
Join experts on Tuesday, April 26, at 9:30 AM EDT to learn about self-reported mental wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example:
- How does self-reported wellness vary across countries and by region?
- Which demographic groups reported higher levels of anxiety or depression?
- How did closures, event cancellations, stay-at-home orders and loss of employment affect respondents’ self-reported anxiety and depressive symptoms?
- What approaches or interventions are feasible for low- and middle-income countries to address feelings of anxiety and depression?
