The Ethical Use of Telepsychiatry in the Covid-19 Pandemic


Stoll, Julia; Sadler, John Z; Trachsel, Manuel (2020). The Ethical Use of Telepsychiatry in the Covid-19 Pandemic. Frontiers in Psychiatry:11:665.

Abstract

In a statement to the press, Dr. Hans Henri P. Kluge, World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Director for Europe, stressed that it is important not to lose sight of the mental health implications of Covid-19 for everyone, noting that “[i]t is absolutely natural for each of us to feel stress, anxiety, fear, and loneliness during this time” (1). If mentally healthy individuals react with fear and stress to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is not difficult to imagine that such reactions make those who have mental disorders especially vulnerable to harm.
