Fear of infection, anxiety about job and financial uncertainty, feelings of isolation caused by the lockdown and other social distancing measures, being overwhelmed… many Barbadians have experienced these emotions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Much of the focus has been on physical health and the economic impact, but there are also mental health implications that need to be examined.

The Central Bank of Barbados teamed up with the Human Resources Management Association of Barbados (HRMAB) to host “The Psychosocial Impact of COVID-19” featuring a panel of medical and other experts: Brittany Brathwaite, President, HRMAB; Dr. Lynda Williams, President, Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners; Dr. Adanna Grandison, Physician, Cornerstone Med Concierge Clinic; Professor Dr. Donna-Maria Maynard, Lecturer, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill.
