An Epidemic Within a Pandemic (and Solutions)
The COVID pandemic has taken a serious toll on mental health, according to a new study published Friday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Studies consisted of more than 5,500 U.S. adults who are aged 18 and older. Tests were conducted between June 24 and June 30th, discovering that, overall, more than a whopping 40% of respondents reported at least one adverse mental or behavioral health condition. In the study, which was released Friday in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) on Friday stated at least 31% reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, more than 26% reported symptoms of a trauma and stressor triggered related disorders related to the pandemic. It was also noted that more than 13% reported starting or increasing substance use to cope with stress or emotions related to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
