We received over 100 responses to our recent Covid and Mental Health survey and I wanted to share the key themes with you. Please see the posters for an overview of what people told us. This information will be used to inform our work and we hope it will be used to inform the work of others too. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to share such honest accounts of the impact of lockdown on their mental health and to members of our Service User and Survivor forum who helped with the creation of the posters. It is clear that the pandemic and lockdown restrictions has had a profound impact on most people but the effects have varied hugely, as you can see. While we have all endured the same pandemic, we have all experienced it so differently, with access to different internal and external resources to draw upon, it’s important that we keep this in mind going forwards.
