It’s likely you know someone suffering right now.
Distractibility, loneliness, depression and anxiety are all on the rise during the pandemic. In a recent national health tracking poll, a majority of U.S. adults 18 and older said that worry and stress related to coronavirus has had a negative impact on their mental health. The pandemic is also disproportionately affecting older adults, women and people of color.
