Coronavirus and mental health study

The health board  is supporting a national longitudinal study aiming to understand how the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has impacted on the mental health and emotional wellbeing of people across Wales.


The study’s first survey took place between June & July 2020 and collected responses from 15,000 participants from all over Wales. A second survey took place from January to March 2021, collecting responses from over 10,000 people living within Wales. The findings from both surveys have helped the NHS in Wales understand the mental health and wellbeing needs of the Welsh population. You can find out more about the results from the each of the surveys here:


The study has now launched its third survey and we would like to encourage everyone living in Wales who is aged 16 and above to participate, so please do think about completing it yourself and asking your family and friends to also complete it.


To access the survey, or gain more information about it, please click this link:  The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.


The survey results will be analysed at a National, Health Board and Local Authority level and will be used to guide the NHS in Wales to support the wellbeing of the population over the coming months.
