Bangladesh is now experiencing the COVID-19 outbreak; however, there has been minimal focus on mental health over physical health problems during this pandemic in Bangladesh . The present study was conducted using self-rated scales on a sample of 500 Bangladeshi people to address this gap . Results suggested two-fifths of the participants had depression and anxiety symptoms, and one-third were highly worried and felt stressed . Females, students, unmarried, and 18-30-year-olds were in more vulnerable positions in terms of their mental health . These findings would be helpful to assess and formulate psychological interventions to improve the mental health of vulnerable groups.
