An annual survey found American adults are more stressed than they were a couple of years ago.
And according to the American Psychological Association, discrimination plays a big role.
The survey found almost half of U.S. adults experienced a major form of unfair treatment or discrimination, "including being unfairly questioned or threatened by police, being fired or passed over for promotion or treated unfairly when receiving health care."
