This Saturday, 10th October 2020, is World Mental Health Day and the focus this year is Mental Health for All. But what does this mean for you?
Many professionals involved in mental health will be coming together to focus on today’s challenges. We all know that the Covid-19 Pandemic has resulted in increased levels of anxiety, fear, isolation and had a greater impact on mental health caused by the need for social distancing and restrictions on meeting up with family. Many may be experiencing poor mental health for the first time due to loss of job, isolation from family and friends or just general anxiety for the changing way in which we’re now living our lives.
The impact on families and young people caused by disruption to and loss of education, and a start at university for some spent in isolation. According to recent research conducted by MIND, more than half of adults (60%) and over two thirds of young people (68%) said their mental health got worse during lockdown.
The good news is that the majority of people who experience mental health problems can get over them or learn to live with them, if they get the right help at the right time, or access online support for practical tips.
Here at the Essex Wellbeing Service we can help you maintain positive mental health and work with you in a number of ways, to suit your needs and circumstances to really make a difference.
