Coronavirus Support Service
The impact of Coronavirus on mental health
A recent survey* revealed that 6 out of 10 adults (62%) were feeling panicked and unprepared by the coronavirus outbreak. Just over 10% felt lonely and nearly a fifth (18%) admitted to feelings of hopelessness. Common concerns were; the threat of debt, job insecurity, disruption to home life, along with ongoing worries about contracting the virus or having loved ones infected, with an increased risk of drinking, smoking or taking drugs as unhealthy forms of coping. Another study, published in the Lancet in February, noted that being restricted to your home can be an unpleasant experience in itself, “Separation from loved ones, the loss of freedom, uncertainty over disease status, and boredom, can on occasion create dramatic effects.”
