Managing Emotional Risks & Consequences Of The COVID Pandemic

  • In your government work for NYC and NYS you led mental health disaster responses, including after 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy. What did you learn about we humans in the wake of a disaster? How does that inform us and we can do today as we try to live with a world disrupted by COVID?
  • How is COVID different from past disasters?
  • What are the risk and protective factors that impact on resiliency, in health, mental health and the addictions?
  • Will we all need therapy to bear the emotional consequences of COVID?
  • You are the Chief Medical Officer of a company called Bongo Media. What is that? How does its work relate to COVID, healthcare and first responders, as well as to other to great social problems such as racial bias and inequity?

Dr. Lloyd says, “for the past 18 years, have been first, NYC MH Commissioner; and then NYS Chief Mental Health Medical Officer. In other words, a government worker, a doctor (in my case). I see my work as devoted to the health and well-being of large numbers of patients. I work for you: it is a privilege to serve.”
