Abstract

BACKGROUND: Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) emerges in Wuhan, China and becomes a pandemic on March 2020. Its manifestations mainly cover respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms. In fact, mental health disorders are common in patients with COVID-19 but receive minimum attention.

AIM: We aimed to discuss mental health disturbances in relation to COVID-19 and its management.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We gathered literature regarding the topic from electronic sources, including PubMed and Google Scholar.

RESULTS: There are several pathogeneses proposed regarding the incidence of mental health problems. The symptoms of mental health problems vary widely and also affect health-care personnel. Diagnosing mental health problem in COVID-19 patients is quite difficult because no examinations are specific enough. The management of mental health problems includes psychological and medical managements.

CONCLUSION: Further study regarding mental health problem and its management in patients with COVID-19 is mandatory.
