Session Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a global event which has highlighted the need for mental health treatment across the world. In addition, many natural disasters such as wildfires and hurricanes are occurring, displacing people from their homes and significantly interrupting their daily lives. These situations have also impacted the mental health of much of the population by increasing stress response which can lead to either a new diagnosis of a stress related disorder (e.g., acute stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)) or an exacerbation of symptoms for those that already have an existing mental health disorder. Based on past studies, alcohol use, PTSD, anxiety, depression, anger, fear of contagion, and distrust are a few of the immediate and long-term effects that can develop for those involved in a pandemic or natural disaster.
 
This presentation on health promotion strategies is a timely topic as the world and health care professionals continue to deal with the mental health consequences of COVID-19 and disasters. Mental health impact and wellness and prevention strategies will be presented with the goal of improving care for patients during the ongoing and possible future pandemics and disasters.
