ACIDD recognizes the urgent need to address, and educate the public about the seriousness of mental illness. In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, it is likely that there will be substantial increase in mental health issues in the world. People will be more anxious and depressed, substance use will increase, social issues such as domestic violence, crime and child abuse will flourish.
