CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Psychiatric Times, a multimedia platform that features content by and for mental health care physicians and professionals, has recently introduced a COVID-19 Resource Center on their website. The center focuses on telepsychiatry, new issues faced by clinical psychiatrists, self-care for mental health problems and more.
The mental health fallout from the pandemic has triggered an increase in patients suffering from depression, anxiety and substance abuse. As clinicians adopt creative solutions to treat patients, Psychiatric Times’ COVID-19 Resource Center serves as a comprehensive guide to psychiatrists.
As health care professionals around the globe watch for a potential second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Psychiatric Times will continue to share the concerns and challenges faced by psychiatrists, as well as potential solutions. The COVID-19 Resource Center will remain prolific, producing content to cover topics such as:
- Anxiety management
- Preventative measures against burnout
- The importance of self-care
“The repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic have manifested into what many health care professionals believe to be an impending mental health crisis,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, parent company of Psychiatric Times. “While the unprecedented nature of the pandemic means it’s difficult to predict what the emotional toll will be, we hope to prepare clinicians whose patients have been affected by the crisis.”
In addition to the COVID-19 Resource Center, the website also features content from Psychiatric Times’ popular “Mental Health Minute” video series. The series features industry professionals discussing issues in short, powerful commentaries. Among these professionals are Allie Shapiro, M.D., who discusses strategies for identifying child abuse as COVID-19 pushes the industry toward telepsychiatry, and Leslie S. Zun, M.D., who discusses accessing services for patients during the pandemic.
“Our COVID-19 Resource Center features stories that move, inspire and support clinicians during these extraordinary times across multiple platforms, including podcasts, videos, slideshows and in-depth articles,” said Heidi Anne Duerr, M.P.H., associate editorial director of Psychiatric Times. “The pieces shed light on hot topics such as the ethics of contact tracing, new clinical challenges associated with the virus and important steps to consider as we move into a post-quarantine world.”
