MHA Data Report Press Release:
August 19, 2021

Mental Health America (MHA), with support from Lundbeck, released a new brief, Severe Depression and COVID-19: Communities in Need Across the U.S., analyzing data collected from 725,949 individuals who took a depression screen (PHQ-9) as part of the MHA Screening Program in 2020. The analysis finds that 62 percent of people scored with symptoms of severe or moderately severe depression. The brief further analyzes this data and breaks it down to the state and county level, a rarity in data collection. County-level data in particular is difficult to find. National government data on depression typically does not include county-level results, and is often delayed one to two years. This analysis is unique in that it can quickly identify local areas with the greatest need for a fast and coordinated response amid the mental health crisis exacerbated by COVID-19.

One Michigan county was mentioned in the press release, Baraga County scored high of having individuals at-risk for severe depression
mental health supports, generate a better understanding of mental health concerns in the U.S., generate new resources to address unmet need, create an environment that promotes mental wellness at the population level, and create long-term systemic policy change to prevent future mental health concerns.
