Working women’s level of depressed mood has increased 83% since February, versus 36% for working men, according to new research. Meanwhile, anxiety levels for working women have increased 52% since February, versus 29% for their male counterparts. Results were gleaned from a May index from Total Brain, a mental health and brain performance self-monitoring and self-care platform. The index, also in partnership with the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions and One Mind at Work, is based on 500 anonymized assessments randomly selected among thousands of Total Brain assessments taken each week.
