Addressing trauma and stress in the COVID-19 pandemic: Challenges and the promise of integrated primary care.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Integrated primary care settings are ideal locations for treatment of posttraumatic stress concerns as primary care is the principal access point for mental health treatment in the United States. The COVID-19 global pandemic will increase the necessity of posttraumatic stress-related psychological care for vulnerable populations and frontline providers through traditional and virtual methods; integrated primary care settings are rapidly adapting to meet this need. Integrating more behavioral health clinicians into primary care clinics will provide better access to whole-person care when it is needed most.
