Key Findings
Most respondents surveyed (7 out of 10) rate their mental health as “Good” or
“Excellent.”
3 out of 10 have been diagnosed with a mental condition by a healthcare
professional.
African Americans and non-Hispanic Whites are more likely to have been
diagnosed with a mental condition than Hispanics and Asians. They are also
more likely to say that their mental health has impacted their personal
relationships and their work.
Gen Z and Millennials are more likely than their older cohorts to report having
emotional problems and to have their personal relationships and work be
affected by their mental health. They are by far the most likely to seek
information regarding mental health.
Across race/ethnicity and generation, social media and mental health websites
are the most common sources of information regarding mental health.
About half say they feel “very” or “somewhat” comfortable talking about their
mental health concerns with healthcare professionals. Interestingly, Gen Zers are
the least comfortable.

African Americans and non-Hispanic Whites are more likely to have been diagnosed with a mental condition than Hispanics and Asians. They are also more likely to say that their mental health has impacted their personal relationships and their work. Gen Z and Millennials are more likely than their older cohorts to report having emotional problems and to have their personal relationships and work be affected by their mental health. They are by far the most likely to seek information regarding mental health. Across race/ethnicity and generation, social media and mental health websites are the most common sources of information regarding mental health. About half say they feel “very” or “somewhat” comfortable talking about their mental health concerns with healthcare professionals. Interestingly, Gen Zers are the least comfortable. 3
