Psychological impact of COVID-19: an international survey

Researchers from a collaboration group are exploring the psychological impact of the coronavirus, its effect on our emotions, behaviour and wellbeing.

The aim of this survey is to better understand the impact the current lockdown is having on our day-to-day lifestyle. The researchers hope to find out what is helpful for people during this time and also what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing.

Anyone over the age of 16 with access to be able to complete this online questionnaire can take part, although they are particularly keen to hear from healthcare workers. This survey is completely voluntary and you can stop completing it at any time. You also do not have to answer any questions you don’t want to, you can just skip them. All information which is collected during the course of the research will be kept strictly confidential.
