There can be little doubt that the medical, educational and economic uncertainty we are currently passing through will leave some serious mental health problems in its wake. And while the campaigns in the before time (prior to the pandemic) have done much to raise our awareness of mental health, awareness is not going to be enough to deal with what is to come, we are going to need some actual understanding, and that’s where Dr Dean Burnett comes in.
The neuroscientist, who tragically lost his own father to the pandemic, has set out to prepare us for the coming mental health crisis by promoting just such understanding. Including the surprising fact that the young and those with pre-existing issues have remained largely resilient throughout the pandemic and may even have benefited. So it is that SITP Online offers a timely welcome to the good doctor and his talk on the science of mental health.
