Good Mental Health

COVID-19 has left it's mark in so many ways. It's hard to quantify the pain, grief, sadness and loss. But the impacts of this pandemic will be felt for a long time. And your organization needs to be prepared for it.

Here are some recent stats from a June 2020 survey from the CDC:

  • 40% of US adults reported struggling with mental health or substance use
  • 31% have anxiety or depression symptoms
  • 26% are experiencing trauma/stress-related disorder symptoms
  • 13% have started or increased substance abuse
  • 11% have seriously considered suicide

These statistics are heart-breaking. And experts expect them to get worse. Now is the time to focus our energy and increasing our knowledge (and resources) around attaining good mental health.
