Third of adults think mental health has deteriorated

A Nuffield Health survey has indicated that as many as one in three adults believe their mental health has deteriorated over the past year.

The poll shows that 37 per cent of adults in the UK are more concerned about their mental health due to coronavirus, and 40 per cent are worried about their physical state.

Despite growing mental health concerns, 42 per cent of respondents said they spend no time looking after their mental health and 15 per cent admit they have not done any exercise in the last year. Data indicates that more than eight in ten adults do not meet the NHS recommended 75 minutes a week of ‘vigorous exercise’. The Healthier Nation Index survey suggests that the average Briton completes only 40 minutes of exercise a week.

Off the back of the survey, Nuffield Health has launched a campaign called Find Time For Your Mind, which aims to encourage people to spend five extra minutes a day exercising or focusing on their mental well-being.
