Psychotherapists, from the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and still to- day, are grappling not only with an omnipresent death and pending mourning, but also with the ethical questions posed to individuals, families, and society, like those of justice, freedom, social fracture, solidarity between generations. They must treat, on an existential level, the people most affected by the pandemic, the impact of which has been multifaceted, serious and has made people lose faith in the future, especially among the youngest, a loss that has had as a corollary the increase in suicidal behavior. In the last year, therapists have also had to deal with the refusal of vaccination and the exacerbation of positions that amplify the sense of mistrust and injustice. It is up to the therapists to testify publicly and not just privately pity - the sufferings and needs of their patients, to contribute to the development of a social dimension that supports survival, but also the desire to live a life that finds sufficient meaning, worthy and fair.

Keywords: Covid-19, Psychosocial impact of the pandemic, Justice and Soli- darity, Mourning, Suicide, Vaccination, Therapeutic responses.
