Karen Johnson"COVID-19 and the global challenges this unprecedented situation have created not only impact physical health but can trigger increased symptoms in individuals experiencing mental health concerns. Isolation is a leading cause of depression and anxiety, which has grown exponentially since the virus ravaged the world. As a leader in behavioral health, UHS is uniquely positioned to continue to support the communities, patients and families we are privileged to serve throughout the U.S. and U.K., as well as champion broad-scale awareness and access to resources. Caring for our staff, who are on the front lines of this pandemic, is also a high priority as we focus on their mental wellness.”
