Anxiety symptoms and risk of mental conditions elevated in middle age workers

The March Mental Health Index revealed some clear differences in workers based on their age, especially those between the ages of 40-59 who have seen an increase in general anxiety disorder, PTSD, and challenges with focus and planning.
  • Older and younger workers are experiencing less mental health now vs. at other points during the pandemic
  • A large portion of workers between the ages of 40-59 are noticeably struggling with their mental health.
  • Returning to a pre-COVID mental health doesn't mean perfect mental health. Workers in the U.S. were struggling with mental health challenges before the pandemic.
