CNN Health: Mental health is one of the biggest pandemic issues we’ll face in 2021
UC pediatrics chair says depression among Asians due to pandemic-related racism
The physical aspects of COVID-19 may be better managed with vaccines, but the pandemic’s impact on our nation’s and world’s mental health may linger longer than expected, reports CNN Health. Mental health struggles that health experts say will mark 2021 include greater instances of burnout and sedentism, along with an increase in eating disorders and substance abuse. Physical and emotional struggles tied to COVID-19 aren’t shared equally, according to CNN.
Some studies have "found a large increase in depression particularly among Asians," Tina Cheng, MD, chair of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and director of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation told CNN Health. Asian Americans and Chinese Americans have reported experiencing negative mental health symptoms due to pandemic-related racism, according to CNN Health.
