In addition to causing nearly 900 deaths and severe damage to the economy, COVID-19 likely will take a mental health toll on millions of Washington state residents by late this year, a clinical psychologist said Thursday.

“What we are anticipating is that between 2 million to 3 million Washingtonians are going to be adversely affected from a behavioral health perspective by this pandemic, particularly in terms of symptoms of depression,” said Kira Mauseth, who has a doctorate in psychology and is a senior instructor at Seattle University.
