First paragraph: I read with great interest the recently published position paper by Holmes and colleagues,1 outlining most appropriately the multidisciplinary priorities for mental health research in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. I concur that we are already seeing the fallout of COVID-19, reflected in more acute presentations with perceived greater risk. This distress is driven in many cases by the consequences of reduced service provision or the loss of economic livelihood. Undoubtedly, mental health is a priority and a coordinated, focused, and robust approach is needed.
