New York, Sep 20 (TIWN) Rising acute stress and depressive symptoms across the US are linked to experiencing multiple stressors triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic, such as unemployment and extensive exposure to pandemic-related news, says a new study.

"The pandemic is not hitting all communities equally," said lead author E. Alison Holman, Professor at the University of California, Irvine.   "People have lost wages, jobs and loved ones with record speed. Individuals living with chronic mental and physical illness are struggling; young people are struggling; poor communities are struggling. Mental health services need to be tailored to those most in need right now."
