Online survey: How are you feeling during the Covid-19 pandemic?
We wish to understand the impact of governmentally enforced regularities and restrictions (i.e. curfew and social distancing) as well as the general stress associated with a state of emergency on mental health. Previous research has shown that people who are effected by mental health disorders are more strongly affected by viral diseases, while also showing a worsening of symptoms due to isolation and social deprivation. As pandemics are becoming more likely in a globalised world we need to understand how procedures that cause substantial societal change impact our mental health in general. This is necessary in order to shape future regulations, and inform intervention services tailored to assist people vulnerable for mental disorders during a state of emergency like the one we are currently facing.
We have set up an online survey to assess the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on mental and physical health.
Please participate in our 30min-survey & forward the link to as colleagues and friends:
