Happy together, stronger apart – Mental Health during a pandemic

“Keep social distance, wash your hands and don’t contract the virus.”
It is easier said than done. In the past year, I stayed at home in Germany. My social interaction has decreased dramatically, and I feel alone, although I’m with my family. The uncertainty and battle against the invisible enemy take a significant toll on mental health – and I’m not alone with it.

Before, we used to go out with friends without worrying. But what happens once we go back to “normal”?

In this video, I interviewed Andreea, a student in London. “Certain areas have improved, but other areas, especially my social anxiety, I think certainly have worsened.”
A survey by mind.org called “The mental health emergency- How has the coronavirus impacted our mental health?” demonstrates essential information about the mental wellbeing of young people aged 13-24.
