PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Mental health during the pandemic has been a struggle for some people, but especially women.

In a study by CARE, a nonprofit advocacy group, women are almost three times as likely to have been affected by mental health issues over the last six months: 27% of women, versus 10% of men, report anxiety, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping and trouble completing everyday tasks.
