Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

COVID-19 has devastated communities worldwide, and individuals with serious mental illness often experience poorer outcomes. The literature on psychiatric hospitals has mostly focused on controlling viral spread, and scant scholarship discusses the transition of patients with serious mental illness from the hospital back to their communities. This column proposes principles for developing safe discharge policies and identifies barriers patients face when infection prevention and recovery goals conflict.
