CDC Study Examines Pandemic Mental Health, Substance Use Among Adults With Disabilities

A recently published CDC study examined mental health and substance use among adults with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study found that, during February and March of 2021, 64.1% of surveyed adults with disabilities reported adverse mental health symptoms or substance use. Results of the survey also indicated that past-month substance use was higher among adults with disabilities compared to adults without disabilities. Additionally, adults with disabilities and a diagnosis of a mental health or substance use disorder more frequently reported difficulty accessing care and medications.
