Mental Health Seen as a Top Health Threat in Axios-Ipsos Poll

Americans see poor mental health as one of the biggest threats to public health, ranking just behind obesity and the long-running opioid epidemic, according to the latest Axios-Ipsos American Health Index.


Overall, 17% said mental health was the top threat to public health, while 19% said obesity, 24% said opioids and fentanyl, and 15% said it was access to guns. The study also found the winter surge in COVID-19 cases wasn't matched by an increase in concern over the virus or changes in how infrequently Americans are masking or testing these days.
