There is absolutely no doubt that the current pandemic has had an effect on people’s mental health all around the world.
According to the Office of National Statistics, male suicide numbers hit a new record for the decade.
And the charity, Mind, released figures showing that nearly three quarters (73%) of students said their mental health declined during the lockdown.
For Generation Z, not being able to live life like those before did when they were young, feels unfair.
However, for some, there was a positive change to their mental state, such as taking up a new hobby or finding time for an old one or sticking to a strict diet plan and exercise regime to better themselves for when the world would suddenly return to some sort of normal.
Those people were able to grasp something that kept them going through the lockdown (see video above and for more images, check out the slides below).
