Abstract

Although COVID-19 is a physical illness, it has had large impacts on mental health. For many individuals, social distancing has led to social isolation; individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder and substance use disorders are at a particular risk for negative outcomes due to the global pandemic. Here, we discuss the impacts we have noticed and procedures we have implemented to care for this population during the pandemic. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)
