Lessons for COVID-19 Recovery From the Ebola Epidemic
In a recent Psychology Today article, Dr. Anton C. Bizzell highlights some of the lessons The Bizzell Group (Bizzell) learned during the most recent Ebola virus epidemic. Bizzell partnered with local, national, and international groups to improve health outcomes and mental health consequences in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These lessons can help address the global mental health crisis already emerging due to COVID-19.
“We cannot focus solely on the transmission of COVID-19,” Dr. Bizzell writes. “We must formulate an innovative and sustainable response that addresses the global mental health crisis already emerging.”
