Mental Health and COVID-19 : Information and Resources
As the number of cases of COVID-19 increase, so does the associated anxiety. For the past several weeks, Mental Health America (MHA) has been using its unique database to monitor the increase in anxiety. According to our screening data, we experienced a 19 percent increase in screening for clinical anxiety in the first weeks of February, and a 12 percent increase in the first two weeks of March.
As things unfold in the coming days and weeks, MHA will continue to monitor anxiety.
To aid individuals and communities during this time, MHA has compiled a range of resources and information.
