There is no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic has had a profound impact on our mental health. Since the early days of questions and misinformation about COVID, we have been on a mental roller coaster ride, often not knowing what lurks around the next turn.
Logan Winkelman, PhD, Assistant Professor in the TTUHSC department of Clinical Counseling and Mental Health, recently explained the mental issues she has been seeing as a direct result of COVID. She discussed the signs to look for in ourselves and loved ones and ways to find help for mental health complications.
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed our lives over the course of one year. In order to “flatten the curve,” we have adjusted the ways in which we live, work and socialize.
Young and old alike have adopted virtual technology, for school, work and for communicating with friends and family.
The health industry is no exception. During the pandemic, we saw an explosion of telehealth and telemedicine visits. This convenient technology allows practitioners and providers of many health tenets to use an internet connection and computers, smartphones or tablets to conduct virtual visits with their patients.
We spoke with four TTUHSC faculty members about the pros and cons of telehealth in their respective fields and what it means for the future of healthcare.
Physician Assistants (PAs) are members of one of the fastest-growing and most rewarding healthcare fields today. PAs are highly qualified health professionals who are trained to provide care to patients in a variety of medical settings. PAs are certified and licensed to practice medicine as part of a healthcare team. They gather and evaluate medical data and participate in clinical decision making, diagnosis and therapeutic management, and they provide preventative care and education.
We sat down with Sarah Stringer, assistant professor in the School of Health Professions Physician Assistant Program, to learn more about the integral role that PAs play in mental health and other healthcare fields.
For many of us, with the winter months can come “the winter blues.” Days are shorter, weather is colder. And with the addition of COVID-19, this winter is like no other. Many have been working from home, isolated due to travel restrictions and case counts. And sadly some have lost family members and friends to the pandemic. We’re all adjusting to a changing world as the headlines continue to scroll in.
“The winter blues” might be more intense this year. And knowing the difference between sadness and depression can be difficult.
