I support… the most vulnerable groups

May 3, 2020

 

A recent paper lists eight groups that might experience the pandemic differently from the general population:

  • children, young people and families (school closures, domestic violence, no free school meals)

  • older adults and those with underlying health issues (isolation, loneliness, bereavement)

  • people with existing mental-health issues (disruption to services and relapses)

  • front-line healthcare workers (fears of contamination, work stress)

  • people with learning difficulties (changes to routines and support)

  • people on low incomes (job and financial insecurity)

  • prisoners, the homeless and refugees (social exclusion)

  • society in general might experience increased health inequality and a rise in use of food banks

 

Information supplied is from a recent survey (April 2020) done by the Academy of Medical Sciences and MQ: Transforming Mental Health
