This is an odd note to write. Like most publications, we had a topic before the virus happened: interviews with Dr. Stevens on understanding and managing psychosis in children and adolescents, and Dr. Ramsay on managing cognitive problems in psychosis. We also have pieces on air pollution and mental health, and parents’ impact on teen sleeping habits. Rapidly responding to current events, we added a pandemic piece and devoted two podcasts to the topic. Catch those online by searching for “Carlat” on your podcast store.
How are you spending your time? 24/7 in a psychiatric ER? Seeing patients online from a mountain lair? Some of my telepsych appointments are a roaring success with kids on the spectrum talking gaming. Others are harrowing—can we hang on and avoid infected hospitals? Stay in touch; we are here for you.
