Impact of Covid-19 on Mental Health and Wellbeing We recognise that the Coronavirus pandemic can be a difficult and stressful time for individuals and families and we would like to hear from you about how Coronavirus / Covid-19 has affected you or your family members' Mental Health and Wellbeing. The survey should take no more than 5 minutes and is anonymous. However we will be looking to share the results with another campaign, Our Voice Matters, which has been set up to capture the thoughts, feelings and views of citizens across Cwm Taf Morgannwg. From our collective findings we will be looking to share this with both statutory and voluntary partners to help shape and develop future services to meet the needs of our community. We believe it is important that every voice be heard so if you would like to expand on your answers in this survey please share your stories through social media using #CTMLockdownVoices or message the project directly through one of its social media handles @CTMVoices.
