Impact of Coronavirus on the Mental Health and Wellbeing of People with Intellectual and Developmental Disorders and their Families

Many researchers, professionals and families have registered their grave concern about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on people with neurodevelopnental disorders. We believe that the group merit specific mention in research and policy decisions as they are likely to be affected significantly by city lockdowns and potential lack of services and more social isolation due to social distancing and/or need for shielding.  Many may not fully comprehend the reasons beind changes in their circumstances. The Journal of Mental Health Research in Intellectual Disabilities wishes to publish articles on the impact of the pandemic on the mental health of individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders across the lifespan and that of their families. Types of suitable manuscripts may include (but not limited to) primary research, rapid systematic/narrative reviews, opinion pieces and letters. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be made available via early online publication and printed in a special issue of the journal.
