If you thought a summer lockdown was bad for people already struggling with mental health, a winter one may well be ten times worse - with cold, dark nights and limited social contact. Please keep a lookout for your family, friends and neighbours that are struggling. Mental health issues related to our lockdown and the pandemic are especially hard for people with depression.
