Research shows worsening COVID’s impact on mental health

The results of the latest poll were presented at the American Psychiatric Association 2021 Annual Meeting and based on an online survey conducted March 26 to April 5 among a sample of 1000 adults age 18 years or older.

The national poll from the American Psychiatric Association shows more people reporting mental health effects from the pandemic this year than last.

Although the overall level of anxiety has decreased from last year’s APA poll, “the degree to which anxiety still reigns is concerning,” APA President Jeffrey Geller, MD, told Medscape.

Young adults age 18-29 (49%) and Hispanic/Latinos (50%) are more likely to report being more anxious now than a year ago. Those 65 or older (30%) are less apt to say they feel more anxious than last year.

In the new poll, about 4 in 10 Americans (41%) report they are more anxious than last year, down from just over 60%.
