Supplementary notes

* Current depression is defined as a score of ≥10 on the eight-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-8). The PHQ-8 is adapted from the nine-item PHQ (PHQ-9), which is based on the nine criteria for diagnosis of depressive disorders in the DSM-IV. Suicidal thoughts/Ideation is defined as an affirmative response to the question “At any time in the past 30 days, did you seriously think about trying to kill yourself?”. Substance use increase or initiation is defined as an affirmative response to the question “Have you started or increased using substances to help you cope with stress or emotions during the COVID-19 pandemic? Substance use includes alcohol, legal or illegal drugs, or prescriptions drugs that are taken in a way not recommended by your doctor.”
** Includes participants who identified as Native American/Alaska Native, Asian, multiracial, or another race/ethnicity.
