COVID-19, it is important to know the action's society can take to mitigate the behaviour health impact of the pandemic and economic crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is a threat to our population, not only for its risk to human life and ensuing economic distress, but also for its invisible emotional strain. Nowadays, it is clearly seen that sharpest economic pullback creates a history in unemployment. It is inevitable that the global pandemic, compounded by financial crisis, will have a material impact on the behavioural health of society. Following the global financial crisis, many countries saw higher rates of depression, anxiety, and alcohol and drug use. The Great Recession ushered in a 13 percent increase in suicides due to unemployment with over 46,000 lives lost due to unemployment and income inequality. Beyond the negative impact of a traditional economic downturn, COVID19 presents additional challenges—fear from the virus itself, collective grief, prolonged physical distancing and associated social isolation—that will compound the impact on our collective psyche.
