The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on our way of life, affecting everything from work to social interactions and cultural and leisure activities. It has introduced new uncertainties and placed significant strains on a number of services and areas of the economy.

Evidence suggests that the challenges and benefits have been unevenly distributed throughout the population and hence the mental health impacts have also varied.
