Mental Health Impact of Lockdown

A report has been published today (Wednesday 21 October 2020) into the mental health impact of the first six weeks of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. Research by the University of Glasgow reveals they had a major impact on the mental health and wellbeing of the population in the UK.

You can read the report here, along with some first-hand stories from my friends I’ve previously published here.

The report says: As we move through this pandemic, investigating the trajectory of mental health and wellbeing is crucial to giving us a better understanding of the challenges people face during this difficult time. By having such analysis and information, we can formulate targeted mental health measures and interventions for those most in need as this pandemic continues, as well as being prepared for future.
