    The panel will explore the mental health of vulnerable populations with an emphasis on examining pre-existing, population-health harming legal and policy obstacles that COVID-19 national health crisis has exacerbated. Preference will be given to panelists who propose solutions to these problems aimed at populations that have already been, or likely will be, disproportionally affected by the crisis, including, but not limited to, indigenous people; individuals with substance use disorder; racial, ethnic, and gender minorities; individuals with disabilities; individuals who are incarcerated or otherwise institutionalized; and people who suffer homelessness and other social and economic barriers with co-morbid mental health conditions.
