Dear Dr.Cobian Mena,

On behalf of the American Psychological Association (APA), we are writing to you as an MOU partner to express our solidarity and support as our psychological associations help our nations in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic. Psychological science has so much to contribute to addressing current pressing needs – from mitigating the psychological risks of social isolation, to reducing stress and anxiety, to increasing access to mental health services, to promoting effective leadership during a crisis. We welcome the opportunity to work together to bring forward contributions from psychological science that may help alleviate the current crisis and to share resources and learn from our experiences.

APA is committed to applying psychological knowledge and expertise to help the global community through these uncertain times. For this purpose, we are making widely available information, updates, tools, and resources for psychologists, health care practitioners, public officials, the media, and the public which can be found at the following links. Also included is a link to an overview of APA’s actions around COVID-19 with respect to the operations of the association, the work of our profession and discipline, and the wellbeing of our broader society:

We look forward to an ongoing collaboration through our APA Office of International Affairs – Dr. Amanda Clinton will be reaching out to you directly, as well. Together, we can support psychologists and the broader world as we grapple with the wide-ranging impacts of this pandemic. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be helpful to your association.

With our heartfelt best wishes,


Sandra L. Shullman, PhD                                       Arthur C. Evans, Jr., PhD
