COVID-19 pandemic: Increased risk for mental health problems and suicidal behaviours

The current COVID-19 pandemic is causing growing concerns about mental health. To raise awareness about the potential increase in suicide and self-harm behaviour, the Section Chair, Marco Sarchiapone, together with Miriam Iosue, drafted a manuscript to be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal.

All members have been invited to contribute to the manuscript with remarks, suggestions, and especially additions (members who will substantially contribute to the manuscript will be included in the authors’ list; other members will be listed in a group called “EPA Section on Suicidology and Suicide Prevention”).

Deadline: June 8th 2020.
