We discuss public mental health, the economic factors associated with higher risks of depression, and how pervasive depression and anxiety appear to be in US adults during the COVID-19 era with public health specialist Catherine Ettman, director of Strategic Initiatives in the Office of the Dean at the Boston University School of Public Health. Ettman’s research reveals the degree to which mass traumatic events affect the population’s mental health and who likely bears the brunt of the pandemic’s mental health toll.
