WHY IT’S IMPORTANT:

Mental stress from the global COVID-19 pandemic is adding to anxiety related to health care, the economy and racism and seriously threatening the mental health of the U.S., particularly among young people, according to a recent national survey from the American Psychological Association. The survey found nearly 8 in 10 adults (78%) say the coronavirus pandemic is a significant source of stress in their lives, while 3 in 5 (60%) say the number of issues America faces is overwhelming to them. In addition, nearly 1 in 5 adults (19%) say their mental health is worse than it was a year ago.
