While talks around mental health and gun violence continue, stories about experiences with anxiety and depression increase
Policy proposals around gun violence continued to remain at the forefront of conversation for the fourth week in a row. Aside from this conversation, various stories emerged about individual experiences related to anxiety and depression. For example, particularly given ongoing threats of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, past-week conversation highlighted that undocumented immigrants in the United States are experiencing intense rates of fear and anxiety. Without legal rights or benefits, they are often unable to seek treatment. Increases in anxiety were also expressed by Puerto Rican citizens who sought advice from a mental health hotline as they braced themselves for Hurricane Dorian. For many, the impending hurricane brought to light difficult memories of Hurricane Maria, which tore through the island two years ago. Lastly, singer Ariana Grande revealed that she is currently struggling with anxiety and depression, ultimately leading to the cancellation of one of her events.
