The COVID-19 pandemic has driven a spike in anxiety and depression as the U.S. faces psychological fallout from the health crisis.

In the last year, nearly 4 in 10 U.S. adults have reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, a dramatic increase versus the 1 in 10 figure reported from January to June 2019, according to a February 2021 analysis of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Health Interview Survey and the U.S. Census Bureau's Household Pulse Survey data by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

As a result, many employers are focused on providing tools and services to address their workers' mental well-being.
