Project CovStress

Josephine Debus is a member of the CovStress project team at the University of Bremen.

In the project, long-term psychological consequences of Corona-related cuts in working life are being researched with regard to economic insecurity, mental health and quality of life. The aim is to investigate which stress effects are still visible in the aftermath of the pandemic, how stress and mental health continue to develop and on which factors recovery depends, and to identify starting points for interventions.
