There has been limited guidance for mental health clinicians about how COVID can impact the body, brain, and mental health—and how this fits into clinical practice. Research shows that COVID can cause significant changes to the brain, bringing on new mental health issues as well as exacerbating existing ones. As clinicians, you may already have COVID-related issues showing up in your practice, even if you are not aware of them. As more people are infected and re-infected with COVID, we will continue to see these problems increasingly in the therapy room. In this training you will learn about the different ways that COVID can alter brain structures, common mental health issues associated with long COVID, social justice considerations, and clinical implications for working with those who have been impacted by long COVID.
