Beyond COVID: Connecting Communities, Health, and Care - Focus on Mental Health
COVID-19 has had a profound impact on our mental health, with rates of anxiety and depression and drug overdoses occurring at rates much higher than before the pandemic. As COVID cases decline (for now), and short-term symptoms begin to recede, the pandemic is likely to have long-lasting influence on people’s well-being. Among those most impacted by the stress and trauma posed by COVID are children, adolescents and parents – especially women. Communities of color, particularly Black and Latinx people, where rates of COVID deaths and cases were higher, are reporting some of the most serious impacts.

Before COVID-19 the availability of mental health care and substance use treatment for all those in need was woefully inadequate. How has the system responded to the crisis and can it step up to address future needs? Join Dr. Maysa Akbar, clinical psychologist and Chief Diversity Officer, American Psychological Association and Patricia Rehmer, President, Hartford HealthCare’s Behavioral Health Network in a frank and insightful conversation, moderated by Frances Padilla, President of Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut.
