dc.description.abstractThe coronavirus disease (COVID) pandemic is the biggest disaster United Kingdom has seen for many decades. Not since World War II has there been such risk, displacement and change affecting the whole community. This is the first UK mass trauma in the presence of the National Health Service (NHS) in which developed mental health and social care support systems can offer help. We have no precedents on which to base our expectations of how things might ‘work out’ as no insult on this scale has occurred in the modern era. There appear to be three main challenges to the mental health of the UK population and the services available to intervene.en
