AMHCA released a major report today on the number of Americans reporting mental health distress over the last few months. Please see our new study – Beyond the Perfect Storm – How Racism, Covid-19, and Economic Meltdown Imperil Our Mental Health – https://www.amhca.org/publications/reports/beyond-perfect-storm -- and our press release on the study -- https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/new-study-shows-more-than-100-million-americans-will-suffer-a-mental-health-disorder-this-year-301116506.html?tc=eml_cleartime
