Info & agenda
Two years of trying to control the spread of the covid-19 virus had a tremendous impact on mental health in all its dimensions and on the social fabric that comprises a society and is of crucial importance for each individual living in that society. Effects of confinement measures became clear early on, yet the magnitude of long-term effects are only beginning to become clear both at an individual and a societal level. In this session we take a multi-angle perspective on the psychological and social effects of the pandemic situation and the measures taken to control its spread.
- Inez Germeys: “Psychological effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on adolescents.”
- Reitske Meganck: “The covid-19 pandemic as a magnifying glass on a society under pressure.”
- Nicolas Vermeulen: “From the threat of SARS-CoV-2 to the scary covid(vaccines).”
