Out of the Blue – February 2021 Newsletter
THIS MONTH WE FOCUS ON:
Mental Health during the Pandemic
This month we are looking at how COVID-19 has impacted our Mental Health and why our mental health is as important as our physical health
A survey carried out by The Commonwealth fund and SSRS shows that a quarter of respondents in the UK and a third of respondents in the USA have experienced a negative impact on their mental health during the pandemic such as stress or anxiety.
|What is driving mental health problems during the pandemic|
According to an ONS Survey, stress and anxiety have been the two largest drivers of mental health deterioration during the pandemic.
|How mental health is experienced across different groups|
In this Global Web Index Health survey some groups, such as healthcare workers, were reported as more likely to experience mental health issues.
|Taking mental health in our own hands|
Going for walks and staying in contact with friends and family are some of the ways in which participants of the MentalHealth.org survey managed to reduce stress.
Until next month!
