The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has thrown us into a period of massive upheaval. A national survey from the American Psychiatric Association (APA) shows COVID-19 is seriously affecting Americans' mental health, with half of U.S. adults reporting high levels of anxiety.

The pandemic has also led to a collective sense of grief from our loss of normalcy, social connections and the world as we knew it.
