Q. How has COVID-19 impacted your mental health?
It has really affected my mental health. I was having a few difficulties pre Covid but the lockdown just made them even harder and I actually ended up in my local mental health crisis unit with suicidal thoughts, was diagnosed with depression, commenced on anti depressants and referred for counselling. So even though it accelerated a deterioration in my mental health it also forced me to get professional help which was completely invaluable. Covid has made me really reassess my life and how I want to live it and made me change my priorities. So I am trying to turn a very negative situation into a positive outcome in my life and has made me realise that so much is out of my control and to try and live each day as it comes.
