Discover 2020: Pandemic Stories launches today on the anniversary of lockdown

Discovery 2020 - Pandemic Stories

March 23, 2021

March 23 sees the launch of Pandemic Stories, a series of audio stories collected by volunteers from Calderdale and Kirklees Recovery College.

2020 will be a year forever remembered for a Pandemic that changed the world, that challenged the mental health and wellbeing of us all.  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.

In June last year, working with the Mental Health Museum, volunteers from the College started to record people’s experiences of the lockdown and its effect on their mental health and now, with the anniversary of the first lockdown approaching we are releasing these stories for everyone to listen to.

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.

The project was supported by the Mental Health Museum and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
