Let’s talk! What does Corona do to our mental health?– Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft launches crowdsourcing initiative

How do the corona virus and the related measures impact the mental health of our society and each individual? Which population groups are particularly affected and what responses are needed?

To generate knowledge on these questions, the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft has launched the initiative „Reden Sie mit! Was macht Corona mit unserer psychischen Gesundheit?“ (Let’s talk!  What does Corona do to our mental health?) in order to create a broad dialogue, raise awareness and generate new evidence-based knowledge.

The public is invited to get involved in a crowdsourcing campaign that will run from May 5 to June 28. On the online platform https://corona.lbg.ac.at anyone can contribute their individual observations, their knowledge and their experience. The first phase (May 5 to 22) will focus on education and corona – please find the survey here.

The results will be used to develop recommendations for stakeholders and political decision makers and to indentify new questions for research.

The Initiative is only provided in German, but please feel free to forward the announcement to your interested contacts.
