Psychiatrists Anticipate Mental Health Needs With COVID-19 — Telemedicine an important way to help

But with so much still unknown about the physical and economic toll COVID-19 will have globally, psychiatrists can expect the community’s anxieties to translate to a significant mental health burden in the coming weeks, said Jessica Gold, MD, MS, of the department of psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis.

“It’s impossible for me to believe the burden on the mental health system is not going to increase [exponentially],” Gold told MedPage Today.

In a poll conducted March 13-16, about one-fifth of respondents said their mental health has taken a hit and 29% said their emotional well-being had worsened in the past week.
