The COVID-19 Challenge for Behavioral Health

Alicia Sparks, Ph.D., MPH, Alexis Marbach, MPH

White Paper

June 17, 2020

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on behavioral health - both mental health and substance misuse - are only starting to surface. In this white paper, Abt’s experts explain the impact that will be felt by people from all walks of life and how needs will grow over time. We recommend addressing behavioral health needs, such as intimate partner violence, mental health, alcohol misuse and use disorder, and opioid misuse and use disorder, and offer considerations stakeholders need to bear in mind to successfully implement programs and services.
