What are the Mental Health Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic?


Adventist Review launches Pivot Points series of virtual panel conversations to provide practical insights

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Adventist Review Ministries is initiating a series of teleconference conversations with experts in their fields to address a variety of questions that have emerged. The series is called Pivot Points and conversations will range from health to theology and will focus on practical insights. This first conversation is called “Sane and Sound” and deals with the effects on mental health of living in the midst of a pandemic. Our guests are Torben Bergland, a psychiatrist and associate director of Health Ministries at the world of the Seventh-day Adventist Church; Marissa Leslie, a psychiatrist and Chief of Psychiatry at Adventist HealthCare, a healthcare system, based in Maryland, United States; and Mario Ceballos, a chaplain and director of Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries, also at the world headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We hope that you will find the conversation both informative and hopeful and that you will share it with others.
