COVID-19 crisis: Why we must prioritise mental health of the world’s displaced

We are in the throes of a health crisis with catastrophic effects on all, especially on the world's displaced communities’ that comprise nations' shadow workers - refugees, rag pickers, prostitutes, domestic help, garment makers, and gig workers. We are at best, unprepared for the worst; for both OECD and developing countries, we need to provide tailored mental health treatment to those who need it in the communities they live in.
