The Covid-19 pandemic has undoubtedly had a negative effect on mental health on a global scale, and especially amongst children and adolescents.

In Vietnam, the fourth and most severe wave of the Covid-19 pandemic (beginning in April 2021), resulted in increased levels of stress, anxiety, depression, grief, and other mental health issues, with particular individual contexts adding to vulnerability. Further, global travel restrictions which impacted overseas Vietnamese reuniting with family exacerbated the impact of the pandemic experience for affected individuals and communities.

In response to these issues, and recognising that many people do not know where to turn for mental health support, the Public and Community Engagement Department (PCE) of OUCRU Vietnam has compiled a directory of professional mental health services and health-related support groups. This has been done in consultation with mental health experts in Vietnam.
