"COVID-19 has emphasized the importance of mental health services. According to a June 2021 report, 40% of people had mental health or substance abuse problems. Patients/clients receiving home care experienced unprecedented levels of anxiety and depression due to the increased isolation caused by COVID-19. Still more troubling, the suicide rate in many states now exceeds the COVID-19 mortality rate. Over the past two years, COVID-19 quarantines and closures have strained access to mental health services despite the demonstrated need for them.
