Ep 28 – Mental health implications of the COVID-19 pandemic


Posted 2 May 2021

Dr Steve Holmes, Dr Peter Bagshaw

In this episode, which has been recorded for Chronic Conditions Month 2021, Dr Steve Holmes (Clinical Respiratory Lead for NHS Somserset) and Dr Peter Bagshaw (Clinical Lead in Dementia and Mental Health, South Gloucestershire CCG) explore the impact that COVID-19 has had on mental health, including among people who have not been infected. How has self-isolation and shielding affected different people? What is the particular impact on children and younger people? What has the toll been on carers? Which people may struggle with "returning to normal"? How can we support people with "long COVID"? What is the potential role for talking therapies in this area?
