Dear citizens and colleagues,
With intention to connect science and practice, Zagreb Child and Youth Protection Center decided to conduct research on mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to understand the emotional state and needs of citizens, as well as provide even better professional support. In the meantime, earthquakes have happened to us in Zagreb, and as experts, we are constantly wondering how our (past, present, and future) patients and clients are.
On this occasion, we present the preliminary results collected from March 19 to April 7, based on the responses of 1314 participants, whom we thank from the bottom of our hearts for their time and effort in completing the questionnaire.
Prof. dr. sc. Gordana Buljan Flander, director of the Polyclinic for the Protection of Children and Youth of the City of Zagreb
