GRiD survey finds a quarter of UK employees struggling to cope with mental health under Covid.
The survey of 1,126 employees in January this year found that 26% of respondents said that their mental health has deteriorated due to the ongoing pandemic.
Around three-quarters (76%) of employees had not contracted Covid-19 to the best of their knowledge, but 13% said they had been infected with the virus and 11% were ‘not sure'. Of those who have had the virus, nearly half (46%), said they were struggling to recover.
GRiD states that the figures serve to highlight the importance of providing access to health and wellbeing benefits to minimise the impact on the individual, noting the increasing availability of mental health support services, remote/online consultations and the "early interventions for Long Covid have been developed that address both the fatigue and neurological side of the condition."
