After a short, post-holiday reprieve, risk of PTSD has spiked again, commensurate with ongoing uncertainty around the pandemic and the new war in Ukraine. According to the latest Mental Health Index: U.S. Worker Edition,
An alarming 1 in 4 American workers screened at risk for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in March, up 121% when compared to pre-pandemic.
The post-holiday period saw risk of General Anxiety disorder drop 35% since December and risk of Depressive Disorder drop 37% in the same time frame.
Stress has dropped 18% since December, while non-conscious negativity bias remained unchanged, making both measures the same or slightly better than pre-pandemic.
