On Wednesday morning @ 09:30, the Office for National Statistics is publishing a report entitled Coronavirus and Depression in Adults.
It's almost certain the report will show an increase in people suffering from depression, for all manner of reasons, from isolation and loss of a job or income, to health worries or bereavement.
We want to know what you're seeing on the ground, e.g.
- What have been the primary causes of depression during the pandemic?
- Do you think people's mental health will improve quickly once the pandemic is over, or that the psychological fallout could last many years?
- Could the Government be doing more to help people with pandemic-induced depression and, if so, what?
