Everybody at some point during the pandemic found the situation stressful. Whether that be from balancing home working and family life, to feeling isolated and lonely, fear of illness, or fear of the negative economic effects. There has been a wide range of emotions.
We understand most people’s mental health will recover quickly as things improve and they have found new ways around our challenges. But for a significant number, the effects of the pandemic on their mental health will be serious and long-lasting.
In Oct 2020 the Centre for Mental Health reported that ‘up to 10 million people in England may need support for their mental health as a result of the pandemic’. While Last year alone absenteeism through poor mental health and wellbeing was reported to have cost the UK economy £14 billion.
So, while there is life after Covid there may be other challenges our way.
