To raise awareness ahead of World Mental Health Day (October 10), Surgo Foundation and Mental Health America are releasing a report that identifies 13 U.S. cities where COVID-19 vulnerability and poor mental health overlap: Camden, N.J.; Reading, Pa.; Detroit, Mich.; Springdale, Ark.; Passaic, N.J.; Allentown, Pa.; Rochester, N.Y.; New Bedford, Mass.; Albany, Ga.; Buffalo, N.Y.; San Bernardino, Calif.; Syracuse, N.Y.; and Trenton, N.J.

The report, “The COVID Mental Health Crisis in America’s Most Vulnerable Communities,” also offers policy recommendations to help state and local policymakers, philanthropists, community based health organizations, patient advocates, and others prioritize responses and planning.
