Coronavirus Crisis Competence

Centre de recherche de l'Institut Universitaire en Santé mentale de Montréal, Center on Sex*Gender, Allostasis and Resilience

This study aims to better understand how sex and gender factors relate to people's adaptation to the COVID-19 crisis. We want to assess how socio-political crises like that of the current pandemic can exacerbate the mental health disparities that exist between men, women and gender diverse people. In addition, we're looking to identify the factors that can promote protection, coping, and resilience in the face of catastrophes and how they may differ by sex and gender.

Your Impact

This study will provide a better understanding of how individuals are affected by the COVID-19 crisis in terms of their mental health and how they adapt to these changes. This knowledge will allow us to identify the specific populations that need particular support and will inform the development of interventions relevant to their well-being. Also, this study will make medical and social services aware of the effects of a major stressor such as the COVID-19 pandemic on the health of individuals with a focus on sex and gender.
