COVID-19 (coronavirus) is affecting all of our lives. Things have changed for everyone in the last few months.

To investigate this NCMH have developed an online survey that asks basic information about mental health, wellbeing and experiences related to COVID-19. Taking part is voluntary and takes around 20-25 minutes.

So far, over 3,000 people have taken part in the survey. However, they need the help of more people.

Why are NCMH doing this survey

The NCMH want services and governments to know what is happening to people with lived experience of a mental illness at this difficult time.

They hope that by learning more, we will be able to inform experts and policy, leading to new and improved ways of recognising and providing support in times of need.
