The unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent global lockdowns continue to unmask our fragilities, long existing social inequalities, and have had a profound impact on society and our mental health as life continues to transition and shift. Our knowledge of the impact of the pandemic is evolving, will continue to expand, and the lessons for how we have adapted need to be highlighted. In this year’s conference, we invite conversations on how COVID-19 has impacted your practice: what insights have you gained, how has your practice shifted, what is emerging from the research, and what visions do we have for the future of the mental health field in the era of COVID-19? We welcome insights from practitioners, community organizations, researchers, and religious leaders, thus seeking diverse perspectives of the ways in which COVID-19 has served as a mirror for our vulnerabilities, and the ways in which we have responded and risen to the occasion.

The Call for Oral and Poster Abstract presentations is closed.
