CDC Launches 2022 Mental Health Study for Public Health Workers

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this week launched its 2022 State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial (STLT) Mental Health Survey to understand and address the mental health impacts and support needs of frontline public health workers.

The survey is an anonymous, self-administered, online questionnaire that covers questions addressing symptoms of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicidal ideation. The survey additionally assesses demographics, job categories, and work environments. The study additionally seeks information on organizational support and coping strategies throughout the pandemic.

The survey will remain open through March 25, 2022. Additional information is available here.
