With the 2020 really weighing heavily on man Americans, some states are taking it harder than others.  Michigan is one of those states.

In a recent survey done by our friends at WalletHub, Michigan was ranked 37th in a list of 2020’s Happiest States in America.  The study came out earlier in the week and looked at individual state's overall mental health.

Despite Michigan ranking quite poorly, we don't rank among the 5 least happy states in America.  But on the other hand, we definitely don't rank anywhere near the top either.
