On Saturday, September 26, 2020, Drs Diane McIntosh and Randall White joined BC Schizophrenia Society to share some information about the impacts of COVID-19 on families affected by schizophrenia.
Dr. McIntosh focused on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on people’s mental health overall and how it has affected families. She also offers up some basic strategies and tips to help people maintain their mental wellness.
Dr. White focused his presentation on the direct impacts of COVID-19 on people with serious mental illness. Dr. White also includes information on coronavirus and psychosis, potential complications of COVID-19 on those living with schizophrenia, what services are available, and the impacts on clinical service.
