Mental health in times of Corona: new factsheet from the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH

On behalf of the Federal Council, the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH is initiating a campaign in December to raise public awareness of mental health in times of Corona.

The personal well-being at the end of October is judged significantly worse than in summer – and is again at a similar level as at the beginning of the pandemic in March. While the emotional load in the first wave was primarily an expression of the immediate threat, the focus is now shifting to a situation in which we feel that our emotional resources for coping with the ongoing crisis are gradually being exhausted.

The FOPH has summarized its findings in a factsheet (German version).
