Address intensifying behavioral health needs amid the Covid-19 crisis
The physical toll of the Covid-19 is unprecedented. But the psychological impact of the pandemic is quickly becoming a public health crisis in its own right. A recent report estimated that as many as 75,000 more Americans will die from deaths of despair (from alcohol, drugs or suicide) due to the effects of Covid-19.
But even as the need for behavioral health becomes more urgent, the barriers to providing comprehensive behavioral health services still exist. During this webinar, we’ll discuss the immediate actions health systems need to take in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis.
Things You’ll Learn:
- How Covid-19 will impact behavioral health service demand
- How to encourage clinicians to tap into the support they need
