💡 What's the Big Deal:

🔍 The UHERO Rapid Health Survey sheds light on the links between mental health, food security, and socio-economic determinants in Hawaii.🚀 It reveals that while over 70% of participants rate their health as good to excellent, disparities exist based on socio-economic and demographic factors, particularly among Native Hawaiians and Filipinos. 😔 Barriers to accessing healthcare, including delays in general practitioner visits, dental care, specialty services, and mental healthcare, further hinder well-being. The survey also uncovers a prevalence of mental health conditions such as depression, low self-esteem, and suicidal ideation, highlighting the impact of unemployment, COVID-19, housing instability, and poverty.
