During a meeting in July 2020, the Health Ministries directors within the Trans-European Division decided to undertake a survey amongst church members in our unions.

We are concerned about the potential impact of COVID-19 on mental wellbeing. As such, this survey is being undertaken to help gauge the experience church members have had, and how it may have impacted their mental health.  The information we gather from the survey will assist us in knowing the level of impact and identify the potential need for support in the local churches.

We will feed back the data collected from the survey to you, so that you can also assess the local church needs and seek out relevant support systems to signpost individuals who are in need of help, in order to safeguard their mental wellbeing. 

The survey is based on ‘The Pandemic Emotional Impact Scale’*1 with a few additional questions on the situation in your local church.
