Ironically, minimal information is available on the mental health of psychology students, trainees, clinicians, and researchers. What’s more, very few studies have explored the prevalence of mental illness among psychology graduate students, and almost none exist that focus on other contributing factors, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, social justice movements, financial barriers, and disability status.
