In this webinar, we discussed the importance of faith and spirituality in understanding mental health and seeking help, and the impact of COVID-19 in raising anxiety for everyone, including those already facing mental health challenges. We heard from Julian Eaton, MBBS, MSc, Mental Health Director for CBM Global and Co-Director of the Centre for Global Mental Health at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
