Mental health concerns for Americans have significantly increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Elevated levels of adverse mental health conditions, substance use, and suicidal ideation were reported by adults in the United States in June 2020. The prevalence of symptoms of anxiety disorder was approximately three times those reported in the second quarter of 2019, and prevalence of depressive disorder was approximately four times that reported in the second quarter of 2019. In the second episode of a four-part series examining the COVID-19 response effort in Southwest Colorado, the Keystone Policy Center examines expanding access to mental health services in tribal and other rural communities.
