According to Stress in America TM 2020: A National Mental Health Crisis, conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of the American Psychological Association, most Americans are not getting the support they need. Most adults (61%) say they could have used more emotional support than they received over the prior 12 months, with more than 8 in 10 Gen Z adults (82%) saying the same.
This study conducted continues to state that, “loneliness and uncertainly about the future are major stressors for adolescents and young adults, who are striving to find their places in the world, both socially, and in terms of education and work. The pandemic and its economic consequences are upending youths’ social lives and their visions for their futures.” The Harris Poll. “Stress in America 2020 Survey Signals a Growing National Mental Health Crisis.” American Psychological Association, 20 Oct. 2020, https://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2020/10/stress-mental-health-crisis.
