As we leave 2020 behind and enter 2021 with optimism, there are a record number of Americans who cannot because they’re anxious, worried, sleep-deprived, distracted, and depressed due to the Covid-19 pandemic; coupled with continuous disruptions in their daily lives, ongoing financial loss and uncertainty about the future. We were already experiencing a pandemic of mental illness before COVID and now we are seeing an unprecedented increase in mental health cases and suicide. We are living in a scary world right now and much help and research is needed immediately, or we’ll definitely collapse an already overburdened mental healthcare system.
