[CCP Virus] How Our Leaders Can Minimize Coronavirus-Related Suicide & Depression—Dr. Roger McIntyre

In the long-run, how will physical isolation and rising unemployment resulting from the coronavirus outbreak impact mental health? What can be done to mitigate these effects? What should governments do? What lessons can be drawn from the Great Depression, the 2008 Great Recession, and the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic? And why do people in lower socioeconomic strata appear to be disproportionately affected by COVID 19? In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Roger McIntyre, a Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology at the University of Toronto who heads the Mood Disorders Psychopharmacology Unit in Toronto’s University Health Network. He’s also the CEO of AltMed and President of the Canadian Rapid Treatment Center of Excellence. This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.
