Lockdown is tough for everyone and during the first lockdown, the number of people diagnosed with depression in the UK has doubled. As we enter a second lockdown, it is estimated that a fifth of the UK will experience mental health issues as a result of the COVID pandemic.
Depression is among the most common types of mental disorders experienced by adults in Great Britain. It can affect people in different ways and can cause a wide variety of symptoms. These symptoms range from lasting feelings of unhappiness and hopelessness, to losing interest in the things they used to enjoy and feeling very tearful.
