Association Between Ambient Heat and Risk of Emergency Department Visits for Mental Health Among US Adults 2010 to 2019

The authors of this study analyze the correlation between extreme heat and mental health conditions, and review data from mental health-related ED visits in the U.S.. Results indicated that there were higher rates of mental health-related ED visits on days with extreme heat. Findings also suggest that there is an increased risk of adverse mental health outcomes in regions of the U.S. that are not as well adapted to heat.
