MAD//Fest Partner New Digital Age has teamed up with wellbeing and performance specialists PUSH to create a survey on how the coronavirus lockdown has affected the mental health of individuals.

The survey is being launched ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week (18-24 May) and is geared towards individuals, teams and organisations who have had to adapt to the new economic climate imposed by the virus.

PUSH are also keen to understand the impact that the new ways of working have had as well as how people are feeling as they look towards the future, given the recent announcements from the Government.

The survey covers a variety of different areas, including productivity while working at home, upskilling, management support, remote working versus office-based work and the effects of the economic lockdown on mental health.

“The pandemic and global lockdowns are clearly having a major social and psychological impact on the entire population. We’re seeing increasing unemployment, families separated and various other changes in the way that we live and work,” says Cate Murden, PUSH’s founder.

“Many of us went into the lockdown worried about what the restrictions would mean for us personally, as well as the wider impact on our countries and communities. But along with the many challenges this period has produced, there are also some positives it has brought with it.

“In the survey, we’ve been looking at different areas that have been affected by the lockdown so that we’re able to have a better understanding of what has been, what is to come and the impact this is having.”
