There is growing evidence that individuals that have recovered from COVID-19, can have symptoms that persist beyond the initial illness. Studies suggest that survivors of COVID-19 are at risk of psychiatric sequelae and that psychiatric and neuropsychiatric sequelae are indeed an essential part of the long-COVID syndrome. Wentworth Healthcare invites you to join Dr Lucette Cysique, Professor Kay Wilhem and Dr Clare Ramsden as they discuss the mental health implications of the COVID-19 infection. Learning Outcomes
