While the medical assessment and treatment of COVID-19 deserves the focus of our health and science experts, it is also critical to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our mental health.

With ongoing community-based behavioral healthcare being interrupted, individuals in self-quarantine due to social distancing and work disruptions, and the added pressures parents are facing with school closures, many are feeling stressed, scared, confused and isolated by the current events. Our health workers on the front lines of this pandemic are particularly vulnerable to the virus and its mental impacts, leaving them with heightened levels of stress and unease.

Tele-behavioral health can help individuals cope with their feelings during this uncertain time, whether those individuals are patients, members or your own employees.

Watch the webinar, Amwell’s Lindsay Henderson, PsyD, Director of Psychological Services, and Elena Kazakevich, LCSW, Senior Manager of Clinical Programs, discuss ways to leverage telehealth to treat mental health issues during the COVID-19 outbreak.

During the webinar they discuss:
  • The impact of COVID-19 on mental health in general and within at-risk populations (including those already in treatment for behavioral health conditions)
  • Specific mental health needs of healthcare workers during the pandemic
  • Lessons learned from past epidemics and quarantines
  • How to quickly enable behavioral health providers to use telehealth
  • Considerations for behavioral health treatment needs moving forward

“Amwell’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours.”

“Nemours puts patients and families at the center of everything we do, so as we started to think about providing care virtually it was absolutely essential that we still be able to deliver that type of patient and family-centered care. Amwell’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours. Amwell continues to be the innovative leader in the telehealth space and continues to adopt to our changing needs.”
