December 20th – Depression
The Facts: The impact of mental health issues stemming from the COVID-19 crisis continues to resonate with many Americans, even as we strive to move past the pandemic.
It’s important to recognize that depression is not solely linked to an imbalance of certain brain chemicals. Rather, it can be caused by various factors, including brain mood regulation, genetic predisposition, and life stressors.
The Facts: More than one in four individuals (26%) expressed expectations of increased stress at the beginning of 2023, up from one in five (20%) the previous year.
Explaining the prevalence of anxiety is not straightforward, but many factors are thought to contribute to the rise in anxiety disorders. These include social media, disrupted sleep patterns, reduced stigma surrounding mental health, and previously underreported cases. Some even consider anxiety to be a significant contemporary issue, potentially rivaling depression as the most common mental health concern.
