Managing Mental Illness After Covid-19 Infection

Stephanie Collier

A concise, practical guide to the mental health effects of COVID-19 and its treatments

Managing Mental Illness After COVID-19 Infection is a resource for people affected by COVID-19 and their loved ones. As the long-term effects, especially the psychiatric effects, evolve and become more common, people are increasingly searching for answers. This book reviews presentations and treatments for mental illnesses post-COVID-19. Readers will learn about the use of medications, supplements, and behavioral interventions to address these conditions.

This engaging and practical book includes numerous tables and other illustrations for easy reference. It provides enough medical detail for patients and their caregivers to better understand the symptoms they may experience, as well as the best ways to investigate and treat those symptoms. However, it is not too complex for the general reader, making it perfect as a standalone book for patients and their families.

  • Learn how and why many people struggle with mental illness following COVID-19 infection
  • Discover what your symptoms may indicate and get advice on how to pursue diagnosis and treatment
  • Find a doctor who can understand and manage the mental and behavioral consequences of COVID-19
  • Get up to speed on the psychiatric and psychosocial effects of COVID-19 infection

This is an excellent resource for the public, policymakers, clinicians, counselors, social workers, and behavioral health coaches that could benefit from the latest research on the psychiatric effects of COVID-19.
