SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) has launched new research into the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on adults with mental health problems.
Your experience can make a difference.
We know that the pandemic has had a devastating impact on people with mental health problems; who have seen their wellbeing and access to support deteriorate.
This latest phase of SAMH research builds on their earlier study – ‘Forgotten’ – , and seeks to find out how people with mental health problems have experienced the latest phase of the pandemic, including the impact of changing restrictions.
Participants must live in Scotland, be 16 or over and have been receiving or been referred for mental health support in the last 18 months. This includes support from GPs.
Participants will be asked to share their experiences of changes to their mental health support; how these changes made them feel; and how their mental health has been affected during the pandemic. The findings will inform future policy to ensure that support is available to those who need it the most.
The initial survey will take around 15 minutes to complete and will close on 15 October at 5pm
