Experience of Psychosis and Homelessness During the COVID-19 Pandemic in Hospitalized Patients

Placeholder Show Content


For her capstone project, Julia Lebovitz wrote a research paper studying the dire effects COVID-19 has had on populations experiencing homelessness and psychosis. Julia conducted qualitative interviews with inpatient participants who were currently experiencing homelessness and psychosis at the Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on this community. Her project identified various factors affecting this diagnosis such as socio-political rhetoric, lack of safety, and lack of health access, among others. Julia hopes to show how the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced some individuals with serious mental illness experiencing homelessness and demonstrate the importance of secure and safe housing as a human right.
