A recent survey indicates that the United States population is still going through “collective trauma” almost four years after the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The results of Stress in America 2023, a nationwide survey that asked over 3,185 American adults about their physical and mental health, have been made public by the American Psychological Association (APA), which has its headquarters in Washington, D.C.

An APA press release states that the highest increase in chronic health conditions since the pandemic was reported by adults between the ages of 35 and 44, who went from 48% in 2019 to 58% in 2023.

Moreover, mental health disorders, primarily anxiety and depression, increased most in that age group, going from 31% in 2019 to 45% in 2023.

With a 50% rate of mental illness in 2023, adults between the ages of 18 and 34 continued to have the highest rate of mental illness.

81% of adults believe their physical health is “good, very good, or excellent,” but 66% have chronic illnesses, according to an American Psychological Association (APA) survey. Similarly, when it came to mental illness, 81% of respondents said their mental health was “good, very good, or excellent,” while only 37% reported having a diagnosis.

According to the survey, adults between the ages of 35 and 44 are becoming more concerned about money and the economy; stress related to money has increased from 51% to 74%, and stress caused by money has increased from 65% to 77% since the pandemic.

According to research, parents of children under the age of 18 have the highest levels of stress; 48% of them said that their stress is “completely overwhelming” on most days. According to the CDC, stress has an impact on every bodily system, and COVID remains a public health concern for older adults.

Developing supportive and healthy relationships is essential for improving mental wellness. Clinical professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center Dr. Marc Siegel also pointed out that stress, anxiety, lockdowns, fear of the virus, and divisiveness are the main causes of the rise in chronic illness and mental illness among adults between the ages of 35 and 44.
