COVID-19 Isolation Impacts on Couples and Families: Recognizing, Addressing & Resolving Relationship Challenges During Confinement 

Human beings are social creatures, and the isolation caused by sheltering-in-place can impact our mental health. The Centers for Disease Control has found that 36% of the U.S. population is experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression disorder. Other numbers include an 891% increase in calls to national crisis helplines, and a 34% increase in anti-anxiety prescriptions.

To address these issues and offer some coping tools and resources, OLLI-UA (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) and UArizona Department of Psychiatry are hosting two Zoom webinars this month. Both are at 2 p.m. and feature a question and answer session afterwards. 

The July 24 presentation features Banner-University Medicine Psychiatry Faculty: 

Alison Coelho, PsyD Assistant Professor Dr Coelho’s areas of professional interest include trauma-focused psychotherapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, neuropsychology, couples’ therapy with an emphasis on interracial marriage.
Noshene Ranjbar, MD Assistant Professor, Integrative Psychiatry Clinic Director Dr. Ranjbar’s interests include integrative psychiatry, health disparities with a focus on Native American and immigrant mental health, and mind-body medicine.
