New survey finds that talking therapies have the greatest positive impact on mental health

What impact has COVID-19 had on mental health? And have people been able to receive effective mental health support? To answer these questions, we worked in partnership with YouGov to poll a representative sample of 2,000 UK adults. It is important to us that UKCP’s work is informed by people’s real-world experience and we were hoping to demonstrate the positive impact of psychotherapy and counselling on mental health.

Key Findings

Our survey highlighted the long-lasting impact of COVID-19 on mental health. Nearly one in five respondents were concerned for their mental health following the lifting of lockdown restrictions and, of those whose mental health was impacted, more than half (57%) encountered barriers to accessing support.
