The pandemic's impact on mental health will be felt for a long time to come, according to a new WHO report. The agency said these issues should be addressed as openly as social and economic recovery.

WHO Europe Director Hans Kluge on Thursday urged member countries to work on alleviating some of the psychological stresses of the COVID pandemic.

Kluge was delivering opening remarks at a conference dedicated to a new report on mental health by the European office of the World Health Organization

"People in the European region are literally breaking under the pressures of Covid-19 and its consequences," he said.

He added that placing mental health reformsat the heart of social and economic recovery and would require "a lot of courage and steadfastness."

I Call True: Well said and very true, now lets see a road map to help people recover and not just a sound-byte about the issue
