Mental-Health Crisis From Pandemic Was Minimal refers to a series of personal anecdotes shared on Twitter contradicting a scientific study claiming that the COVID-19 pandemic had a negligible impact on people's mental health. The trend gained virality online in March 2023 after BBC News tweeted an article about the study, prompting humorous reactions and memes in the quote tweets.


On March 9th, 2023, the Twitter[1] news account @BBCWorld tweeted an article reporting on a study of mental health symptoms before and during the COVID-19 pandemic published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). The study concluded that the "mental-health crisis from pandemic was minimal." The tweet gained over 530 retweets, 44,000 quote tweets and 4,500 likes in four days (shown below).
