LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Behavioral Health, Inc., a national leader in behavioral healthcare, will host a panel of renowned mental health experts in "Coping With COVID," two free Zoom webcasts for anyone with questions on how to cope with the stress of the global pandemic, on Thursday, April 9th beginning at 2 pm ET. The panels will address questions related to mental wellness, eating disorders, alcohol and drug addiction, and trauma.
The April 9th online webinar is open to the public at 2 pm ET and healthcare professionals at 4 pm ET.
"Behavioral health issues do not take a break during times of crisis," said Livengood, a licensed marriage and family therapist with experience in working with both adults and adolescents. "In fact, an event of this magnitude can trigger those who are dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma or addiction. As all of us socially distance ourselves, it's a struggle for everyone to adjust to stay-at-home orders, and cope with the looming fear of illness, financial stress or job loss."
"Discovery Behavioral Health already uses Zoom technology for its telehealth patient programs nationwide, so this public program was a natural next step in its mission of leading the way in behavioral health accessibility to the public and the healthcare professionals on the front lines battling this pandemic," Livengood added.
