    While the COVID-19 crisis is primarily a physical health crisis, it also contains the elements
    of a significant mental health crisis. At the best of times, mental health is critical to society’s
    functioning. Numerous people are distressed as a result of the virus’s immediate health
    consequences and the consequences of physical isolation. Many people fear infection, death,
    and the loss of family members. This article conducts a review of the literature on the
    following topics. To begin, it reviews the research on the psychological effects of COVID-19
    on the general population. Second, the article examines the demographic groups that are most
    vulnerable to mental health problems (such as medical workers, children, and women).
    Thirdly, this study discusses protective factors and some broad-based preventive strategies,
    both individual and government-based. based. We argue that the crisis has had a significant
    impact on the mental health and well-being of entire societies and that these issues must be
    prioritized in every country’s response to and recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.
