The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all aspects of people’s lives, relationships, health and well-being – the world over – and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. During public health emergencies, it is vital that mental health and suicide prevention remain priorities. It is important that we all as individuals do what we can to look after ourselves and each other.

As the leading global suicide prevention organisation, IASP’s COVID-19 Resource Centre aims to provide information for those seeking resources related to the pandemic and suicidal behaviour, suicidal ideation and self-harm. If you wish to collaborate with us, please contact us directly at

If you are experiencing COVID19-related mental health issues, do not hesitate to reach out for support. Crisis lines are also available in many countries.
