COVID-19 has impacted every corner of the world. Countries such as Australia and New Zealand, with strong leadership and pro-active mitigation strategies, have been reasonably successful in limiting the spread of the disease. Other countries, such as the United States and some European countries, have adopted a more laissez-faire approach with catastrophic consequences. One thing is certain, the pandemic has had profound impacts on every society. These impacts are not limited to economic or physical domains, but also psychological. Although the prevalence of mental illness varies by country, recent data suggest the pandemic has resulted in an escalation of mental illness. Coupled with economic uncertainty through job losses and company closures, disruptions to social society caused by travel restrictions and social isolation, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted global wellbeing. This negative impact is evidenced through elevated levels of anxiety or depression to suicidal thoughts and behaviours. To explore these issues in more detail, and particularly the future psychological impacts, the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is running a Special Issue entitled “Post-Pandemic Mental Health Crisis”. As Guest Editors for this Special Issue, we would invite our colleagues to consider submitting their work to this issue. We are interested in canvassing a broad range of mental illness issues across the lifespan. Articles from all countries are welcome, and we look forward to hearing your research story.
