Discovery 2020 - Pandemic Stories

March 22, 2021


‘I sobbed and sobbed’. A rare visit from a loved one in lockdown. 

2020 will be a year forever remembered for a Pandemic that changed the world, that challenged the mental health and wellbeing of us all.  This terrible virus caused our country to be placed in lockdown and life as we knew it came to a stop.  The Discover 2020 project has recorded personal stories of those who experience mental health distress, living in lockdown to create an archive of experience for future generations.  Being able to see life through their eyes, means we can learn from these personal stories to shape and improve mental health services in the future.


Hear more of Carrie’s story here. It’s now 18 weeks since the world changed and Carrie reflects on the impact of not being able to work, missing her family and the power of a good cry.
