Support from MIND This World Mental Health Day - 10th October 2020

 

World Mental Health Day 2020 is the most important one yet.

This year has been a tough one for us all. The months of lockdown and loss have had a huge impact on our mental health.

According to our research, with over 16,000 people, MIND know that more than half of adults (60%) and over two thirds of young people (68%) said their mental health got worse during lockdown. They know that many have developed new mental health problems as a result of the pandemic and, for some of us, existing mental health problems have gotten worse.

Prioritising mental health has never been more important than it is now.

So this year, MIND want to bring everyone together to mark World Mental Health Day on 10 October.

Making positive change can seem so hard, especially during uncertain times. And sometimes, it can be hard to know where to start. Whether you want to take the first steps towards getting some help or learn more about helping those around you, our information, support and their online community will get you started.
