An Important Mental Well Being Resource for You, Your Colleagues, Patients, Families and Friends: CALL TO MIND – Mental Well-Being & Coronavirus
For Our Federation of Texas Psychiatry Members:
REFLECTIONS OF A “COVID-19 LONG-HAULER” – A PHYSICIAN-AS-PATIENT PERSPECTIVE
It recently came to our attention that one of our fellow colleagues and President of the Greater Long Island Psychiatric Society, Dr. Scott Krakower was diagnosed with COVID-19 in April, while being a young father of a newborn and toddler. Dr. Krakower is still undergoing recovery, as has been the case with others now termed COVID-19 Long Haulers. We are sharing the links to the Today video and USA Today article for your information.
On behalf of all of the Members of the Federation of Texas Psychiatry, we send our best wishes to Dr. Scott Krakower for an expeditious and full recovery as soon as possible. And, to all of our members, Please Stay Safe and Remain Healthy.
