Welcome to this new newsletter providing results from the COVID-19 Social Study. With over 70,000 participants who have between them completed over 450,000 surveys across 14 weeks, this is the largest study of the psychological and social impact of the pandemic in the UK.
Below, we highlight some of the headline findings from the past month, provide links to media coverage the study has had, and discuss the work we are doing with policy makers and organisations across the UK.
We are currently looking for more participants who are happy to have a telephone interview with us so we can get a more detailed insight into their experiences. If you identify with any of the following groups and are happy to take part, please get in contact with Alex Burton as we'd love to hear how you've found the last few months:
- People living with schizophrenia or psychosis
- Men who are living with a mental health condition
- Older adults (aged 70+) or people living with a long-term physical health condition from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds
- Black people who are living with a mental health condition
For those of you who have been participating in the study, a huge THANK YOU. Your time each week is immensely valuable in helping us to understand the effects of the pandemic on people and identify what support is most needed.
