Shaili Jain, M.D., PTSD Specialist and Professor of Psychiatry, Stanford University
The Covid-19 global pandemic has forever changed our lives. Alongside the battle to treat the millions who are infected, to contain the virus and to deploy effective vaccinations is an urgent need to manage the mental health devastation that has accompanied the virus. Mental health professionals are seeing mental health distress, in the populations they serve, and are bracing for an epidemic of mental health consequences that will continue to reveal themselves in the months and years to come.
Dr. Jain explores what happens when large swaths of people are exposed to a massively traumatizing event in a discrete period and argues why understanding trauma and its impact on our brains, bodies and culture will be integral to our collective
healing from this pandemic.
