Yale psychiatrist Bandy X. Lee is leading a group of mental health professionals in urging a congressional intervention into President Donald Trump’s coronavirus response.
Dr. Lee, a forensic psychiatrist at the Yale School of Medicine who also teaches at Yale Law School, has sounded the alarm over Trump’s mental health for years. Lee heads the World Mental Health Coalition, whose membership she says includes thousands of mental health professionals.
