Researchers at the National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) have launched a new survey to look into how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected those living with a mental health condition.
Professor Ian Jones, director of NCMH, said; “The COVID-19 crisis has already had an incredible impact. At NCMH we want to ensure that the particular experiences of people with mental health problems aren’t forgotten.
We would like to understand how the crisis has affected your day-to-day life and what it has meant for the treatment and support you are receiving.

“We hope the findings of this study will help inform the NHS and policymakers provide better services and support.”

The online survey is open to people over the age of 18 who have experienced a mental health condition. Both new participants who are not already a part of our NCMH cohort study and those who have already helped with NCMH research are invited to take part.
If you have already taken part in NCMH research you will have been emailed a link to complete this new survey. By using this link, it will enable us to link up your response to the research you have participated in previously.
Professor Jones said; “It’s vital we understand the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on those living with mental illness, I would just like to say thank you in advance for helping us make a difference.”
