President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Dr Adrian James, said a combination of the disease itself, the social consequences and the economic fallout were having a profound effect on mental health and predicts this will continue long after the epidemic is reined in.
James said. “It is probably the biggest hit to mental health since the second world war."
ExcludedUK a non profit grassroots NGO founded to provide a platform for those denied fair and adequate financial support from the Governments COVID-19 Support schemes since the pandemic began in March. With a community of over 60,000 members across all industries, age groups and regions, we estimate that three million UK tax payers have been excluded from the same support as others, which has lead to thousands of people losing their livelihoods, careers, and homes, and sadly, for some, their lives.
ExcludedUK has been fundraising to provide urgent help and support for those affected in the forms of business and career advice, debt support and 121 counselling sessions within 48 hours. Please find more information on our website www.excludeduk.org.
