A recent Washington Post article revealed Census Bureau data that showed that “a third of Americans are showing signs of clinical anxiety or depression.” They go on to say that ” The findings suggest a huge jump from before the pandemic. For example, on one question about depressed mood, the percentage reporting such symptoms was double that found in a 2014 national survey.” It is not surprising to see these numbers rise as we face this pandemic. When times are uncertain and our challenges increase, it can also take a big toll on our mental health and well-being.
We have seen this increase firsthand at Sound. Our own clients have expressed a greater need for connection and support and many new clients are reaching out to Sound for the first time.
