Could COVID-19 improve psychiatric awareness at the heart of the Middle East? – A personal reflection on Bahrain’s response

  • H. Maher Negm

Abstract

This perspective offers a personal insight into COVID-19 in Bahrain along with the response to this unprecented pandemic. In a country where a robust health care system and economic prosperity have allowed it to cope with the medical sequelae, the mental health consequences may have been less anticipated but more problematic. An unforeseen positive emerging from the pandemic might be the nation’s recognition of the importance of mental health wellbeing and a new openness to discussing it.
