About this talk
Research has shown that prolonged periods of isolation and economic uncertainty has a devastating impact on mental health. While scientists are still learning about the societal impact of lockdowns, job loss, and pandemic-related grief, there is no doubt that the mental health consequences of the pandemic will affect individuals, families, and society for years to come. In this presentation, Dr. Adrian James, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, will discuss current evidence on how the coronavirus pandemic has affected mental health, as well as the most effective treatment options available to support those experiencing depression, anxiety, and addiction. Learn about the College’s new position statement on social prescribing in the U.K., and how yoga can be used to bolster mental healthcare in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
