​​​​​​​​​The COVID-19 pandemic has been a dangerous health threat - killing thousands and sidelining millions of people worldwide. Moreover, the pandemic was a surprise to most health professionals and health systems, catching many of us unprepared.

This issue of Journal of ECT includes three papers providing very early reactions to how ECT services respond to the impact of COVID-19 on the provision of ECT. These pieces should be viewed for what they are - early reactions, subject to revision.
