New Report Points to Women’s Mental Health Crisis

A new report from humanitarian organization CARE is pointing to an overlooked crisis: women’s mental health. According to the report, women were almost three times more likely than men to report that their mental health had been impacted by the pandemic. Women cited issues such as skyrocketing unpaid care burdens and worries about livelihoods, food and health care—all of which are causing rising rates of anxiety, stress and other mental health issues.
