The COVID-19 outbreak and psychiatric hospitals in China: managing challenges through mental health service reform.
Int J Biol Sci. 2020; 16(10):1741-1744.IJ

Abstract

Recently, more than 300 Chinese patients with psychiatric disorders were diagnosed with the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Possible reasons quoted in the report were the lack of caution regarding the COVID-19 outbreak in January and insufficient supplies of protective gear. We outlined major challenges for patients with psychiatric disorders and mental health professionals during the COVID-19 outbreak, and also discussed how to manage these challenges through further mental health service reform in China.
