The COVID-19 “Patchwork Pandemic” and Mental Health
September 1, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
COVID-19 has been called the “patchwork pandemic” because of its uneven impact across regions and subpopulations. Emerging evidence indicates a similar pattern for the mental health effects of the pandemic. Dr. Benjamin Druss will review what is currently known about COVID-19 and mental health, with a focus on which populations are at elevated risk of developing behavioral health problems. He will address the complementary roles that clinicians and public health practitioners can play in addressing the mental health consequences of the pandemic.
This webinar is co-sponsored by the Region IV Public Health Training Center.
Key Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the rates of mental health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic;
2. Identify the subpopulations at highest risk for mental health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic; and
3. Address roles for clinicians and public health practitioners in addressing the mental health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
