PTSD in the Aftermath of COVID-19
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating disorder that develops in some people following traumatic experiences. It is important to draw attention to PTSD as an effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, for the general population, patients, and healthcare workers. Studies have shown that healthcare workers are at high risk of PTSD during pandemics. Considering that healthcare work is already an at-risk occupation, it is crucial that we openly discuss PTSD and other mental health disorders so early intervention can occur and responses to traumatic events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, can be expedited for healing to begin to take place for our patients, the community and healthcare workers.
