This editorial from Shervington and Richardson describes the disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 due to racial inequities and socioeconomic disadvantage in the city of New Orleans. The authors use insight gained from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to explore the mental health effects of disasters, contextualizing recommendations to address population mental health during both the immediate crisis response and recovery phases.
