Covid-19: second phase of the CN2R’s study on the psychological effects of lockdown

On The June 19, 2020

In April, 70,000 students responded to the Centre National de Ressources et de Résilience (CN2R) research center’s prospective study to determine the psychological effects of the Covid-19 lockdown. Today, students from the Université de Lyon are invited to take part in the second phase of this study.

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced several countries to enforce a nationwide lockdown. Scientific publications on the impact of a quarantine situation on the population have suggested negative effects on mental health, including symptoms of post-traumatic stress. As a result of this study, students were identified as being at risk of developing psychological disorders.


The CN2R invites all university students, regardless of whether they responded to the questionnaire in April, to take part in the second phase of this study.


The questionnaire is anonymous and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
