The emergence of COVID-19 led to massive change, more uncertainty, and new challenges for many of us.
Covid-19 resources hub
We have been at the forefront of the crisis since the beginning, and were one of the first charities in the world to launch practical mental health advice because we believe that giving people clear, evidence-based and engaging information on looking after their mental health is a key part of our prevention mission - How to look after your mental health during the Coronavirus outbreak.
Research and Programmes in response to Covid-19
We quickly launched a major UK-wide research study to understand the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the nation’s mental health, and how to respond effectively - Coronavirus: Mental heath in the pandemic study. We have adapted our programmes to ensure we continue reaching vulnerable population groups - here we focus on Peer Education Project in Scotland and Standing Together Cymru.
The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 was Kindness, in response to the mood on the nation, and provide a message of hope.
