The current COVID-19 pandemic has made the world more acutely aware of the impact of grief and loss on daily life. After one year, when many of us face continuing uncertainty about the future and wonder when will things become normal, we see multiple waves of the pandemic raging. We are facing an echo pandemic of mental illness. Physical health, emotional well-being, economic security, social connections and spiritual life are all affected.
The Library of Congress is fortunate to have access to researchers and mental health experts who are willing to share their knowledge and cutting edge information in order to bring hope and promote health literacy among the public. The Library's Health Services Division and the Science, Technology and Business Division have joined together to host this webinar to help promote further understanding of the current pandemic and encourage a dialogue about coping skills and mental health.
Employees and the public can also submit questions in advance for the panelists using Ask A Librarian: https://ask.loc.gov/science
