Lebanon’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic is largely being maneuvered amid
the country’s escalating triple fold crisis. As the country continues to grapple with political
stagnation, a dwindling economy and currency, all while working through an ongoing
refugee crisis, mental health in times of Coronavirus in Lebanon remains unaddressed.
This piece explores the effects of this triple fold crisis upon the mental health of the
country’s refugees and most vulnerable groups, and provides room for discussions on
the potential benefits of telemental health as an intervention in low-income and conflict
settings. Although the implementation of TMH services in Lebanon among vulnerable
communities in times of COVID-19 is not a priority, this piece insists it would ultimately
fill a substantial mental health gap during the country’s ongoing difficult transitory period.
