A survey of 503 Israelis, performed in April 2020, found high levels of anxiety and risk for depression; these mental health issues were associated with several stressors connected with the coronavirus and related policies. However, only a small percentage of the sample received mental health care from a professional, with native-born Israelis less likely than recent immigrants to receive such care. Some possible initiatives based on these findings are suggested.
