As people across the country join in the fight against COVID-19 through physical distancing, it is vital to remember that staying “safe and healthy” during this time includes more than limiting contact with others and time outside the home. As the crisis continues on, many people are dealing with an elevating strain from existing mental health challenges, while others are developing new ones. With the growing impact of pandemic and isolation-related stress and anxiety, health systems are working diligently to find best ways to address new and existing mental health needs - for both healthcare workers and the communities they serve.

Join Dr. Gary Gottlieb, Harvard Professor of Psychiatry and Former CEO of Partners In Health and Partners Healthcare; Dr. Chi Huang, Executive Medical Director of General Medicine and Hospital Medicine Shared Services, Wake Forest Baptist Health System; Dr. Mark Hyman Rapaport, Emory University Professor and The Reunette Harris Chair of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Chief of Psychiatric Services, Emory Healthcare; and Kyruus Chief Medical Officer Dr. Erin Jospe, for a discussion on strategies for facilitating continuity of care and treating mental health conditions outside of traditional in-person models.

This session in our virtual forum series will focus on:

  • How health systems have responded so far and how they are preparing for a potential pandemic-related rise in mental health concerns and comorbidities
  • The role that virtual care and other care innovations can play in enabling continuity of access during the pandemic and as well as curtailing the stigma around mental health more generally 
  • Approaches to treat and monitor acute mental trauma and clinical burnout for healthcare providers and staff
