We’ve just made it through a Labor Day holiday weekend that was like none other we’ve ever seen, with the number of activities we could enjoy sharply curtailed because of Covid19 and all of the virus related mandates and regulations. 2 new reports out today Shed light on the impact the virus and the restrictions and the effect they’ve had on our economy and our mental health. A report from the Kaiser Family Foundation says 53 percent of the adults it surveyed report they are suffering from anxiety, depression or other mental health issues blamed on the pandemic. 11 percent reported they had considered suicide in the past month. For those between the ages of 18 and 24, that number grew to 25 percent. Meanwhile The Pew Research Center says 52 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 are sharing homes with their parents, a number that’s the highest since the great depression of the 1930’s. The job losses, money worries, loneliness and isolation that have become part of the pandemic world we live in are having impacts on us that can’t quickly be measured in things like new case numbers, hospitalizations or fatalities blamed on the Coronavirus and that’s not likely to change any time soon. That’s the way I see it.
