Employees are self-reporting a 35.5% rise in anxiety and depression since mid-March 2020 as they juggle their work lives and families.

Long before anyone had ever heard of COVID-19, millions of U.S. workers were already buckling under the strains of working full-time in their jobs while juggling the demands of providing care for a child with special needs or aging parents or in many cases both. In fact, according to the Caregiving in the US report from AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving, there are an estimated 53 million caregivers in the United States, up from the estimated 43.5 million caregivers in 2015. The pandemic has only increased the crisis workers were already facing. According to the Torchlight Report of Working Caregiver Concerns, employees are self-reporting a 35.5% rise in anxiety and depression since mid-March 2020 as they juggle their work lives and families.
