The impact of the pandemic is felt by people all over the world. This is caused by stigmatization, discrimination, positive experiences of Covid, and disruption of social support. The purpose of this systematic literature review was to find out the psychological impact during the pandemic on the community. This systematic literature review was compiled by searching for articles from 2020 to 2021 contained in health databases from several journals such as Elsevier, BMC, Index, Cambridge University Press, Dove Press, and Wiley which was performed electronically. The inclusion criteria included in this study were focusing on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and mental health. From 20 articles, it was shown that psychological factors also played an important role in adherence to preventive measures in public health (such as vaccination) and how people deal with the threat of this virus infection with good health protocols. A person with a low level of education had a risk of being prone to depression and anxiety. This was because if someone with a high level of education had extensive knowledge about virus transmission so that they were better able to protect and cope with the anxiety and depression. Theoretically, the implication of this study is to enrich insight related to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on community mental health. While practically, this study might empower the community to maintain a healthy lifestyle during the pandemic that can prevent mental disorders. We hope this study will also empower stakeholders to create a policy that works in facilitating mental health assistant during the pandemic, especially for the Covid-19 patients in the community.
