A survey completed by Mind revealed some shocking statistics.
25 percent of adults contacting the NHS were unable to get the support they were looking for.
A further 1:3 adults and more than 1:4 young people did not try to access support during lockdown as they believed there problem wasn’t serious enough.
People living in social housing reported their mental health half deteriorated further during lockdown. Similarly 58 per cent of under 18’s who receive free school meals reported their mental health was poor or very poor.
This is a global pandemic and a traumatic crisis and our government must take the impact on mental health seriously long after lockdown ends.
