Coronavirus pandemics changed rapidly the way of living, working and socializing, and this has caused new stress.

The humanities and social sciences play an essential role in information/misinformation mitigation, reduction of fear and stigma, prevention, screening, adherence to treatment, and control policies. The challenge of the covid-19 pandemic requires collaborations between disciplines, including, but not limited to, psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, artificial technology (AI), etc. Each of us, as scientists and practitioners, is ready to share data, experience, ideas.

AI could be a great help to human understanding on how effective is each country's strategic plan to prevent and treat covid-19, and its causes and consequences. Out of these comparisons, on a global level, could be made decisions for the next day, the post covid-19 era. Also, what worked out earlier in some cases could be helpful later in other cases. This work should be the collaboration among mental health scientists, health scientists, AI scientists, and many more, grounded on robust ethics.

As a psychologist I am ready to feed my AI and health collaborators with mental health data, scientific experience and ideas, prioritising ethical issues. I am devoted to advance mental health through computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) and human-computer interaction (HCI).

Anonymous group data (versus personalized individual data) have been used by open science to advance society's understanding on critical issues. Personalized individual data are of no other use to science, than to deeply describe a case study in a journal or congress, by fully protecting personal identification.
This is basic code of ethics to conduct research.
