World Mental Health Day 2020 is the most important one yet.
This year has been a tough one for us all. The months of lockdown and loss have had a huge impact on our mental health.
According to our research, with over 16,000 people, we know that more than half of adults (60%) and over two thirds of young people (68%) said their mental health got worse during lockdown. We know that many have developed new mental health problems as a result of the pandemic and, for some of us, existing mental health problems have gotten worse.

From lockdown, to furlough, to job losses. We’ve all found ourselves under pressure. Lockdown has affected us all in different ways, and it is only normal to feel uncertain about what the future holds. The stress of this uncertainty could be having an impact on your mental health too.
Prioritising mental health has never been more important than it is now.
Making positive change can seem so hard, especially during uncertain times. And sometimes, it can be hard to know where to start. Whether you want to take the first steps towards getting some help or learn more about helping those around you, our information, support and our online community will get you started.
So this year, we want to bring everyone together to mark World Mental Health Day on 10 October.
Whatever you’ve been through this year, World Mental Health Day is a chance to make a positive change for the mental health of your workplace. But it can be hard to know where to start sometimes.
