Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, is encouraging constituents to fill out a survey about how they’ve been feeling during the pandemic.
The survey has been set up by the mental health charity Mind. They want to know whether people have been able to access the support they need, what has had a good and bad impact on how they have been feeling and how they have been coping.
The pandemic has been a difficult time for everyone. Some may have felt low, less motivated, or worried about the future. They may have also felt more angry and this could have affected their relationships. On the other hand, some may have also found new and positive ways to cope over the past year.
The response to the survey will help Mind to better understand what this changing world means for mental health in the long-term, and make sure they are there for those who need them most.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“The pandemic has been incredibly difficult for many people and has definitely had an impact on the mental health and wellbeing of many people.
“Mind are a brilliant charity and this survey will help them understand the mental health impact of the pandemic and the various lockdowns and restrictions.
“I would encourage everyone who can to take the time to fill out this survey.”
