Mental Health Issues

COVID-19 seems to be a long-lost concern, amidst the growing inconveniences towards mental health. It could be estimated from a 2022 report by Ipsos Global Health Service that the ratio of Americans has been raised from 35% in the year 2021 to 51% in 2022, rating ‘mental health’ as their top heath concern.

In contrast, the number of Americans who considered COVID-19 to be a health concern has dropped from 68% in 2021 to 43% in 2022.

Shedding light on the polled estimate, Megan Grobert, the Director at Ipsos, suggests, “While Americans are slowly adapting to living with COVID-19, mental health and behavioral health has become an evident matter for the public.” She further attributes healthcare costs as being one of the top factors contributing to the scenario. Megan says, “Despite Americans’ satisfaction with their overall healthcare, they are still paying attention to related issues such as equity, long waiting times, not having enough staff, and costs.”

Although a large number of Americans agree that the healthcare system is far beyond offering them a level of care, considering the equity and costs — a small percentage of those are still optimistic about the future of healthcare access compared to other parts of the world.
