*ICYMI: The other devastating toll of #COVID19 on Black and Latinx Americans has been on mental health. @CDCgov released new data last week showing increases in symptoms of anxiety and depression, substance use, and serious consideration of suicide related to #COVID19.

These are already communities where access to mental health services has been significantly limited. Additionally, Black and Latinx communities have suffered the brunt of the health and economic tolls of this pandemic in infection rates, hospitalizations, deaths and job loss.
The data also reveal that essential workers, who are disproportionately Black, are also suffering from increased #COVID19 related anxiety and depression symptoms.

Here is the link to the study.
