Roxane Cohen Silver, UCI professor of psychological science; Alison Holman, UCI associate professor, Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing and Dana Rose Garfin, UCI adjunct faculty, Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing, write, “As 2020 comes to a close while the pandemic and other tragedies continue, policymakers must make resources available to support community mental health and enact policies that directly address economic and racial inequity in the burden of these crises. In so doing, they can strengthen the social fabric and ease the mental and physical health burden of these trying times.”
