Careif are collaborating with researchers from Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust who are leading a collaboration group in a global study into the psychological impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. The study is linked to the Medical Research Council global health research program led by the Portsmouth-Brawijaya Centre for Global Health, Population, and Policy, University of Portsmouth. We invite people to take part in a short questionnaire exploring the psychological impact of the coronavirus, its effect on our emotions, behaviour and wellbeing. The aim of the survey is to better understand the impact of the pandemic and the current lockdown on our day to day lifestyle, what is helpful and what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing.

This survey has ethical approval and we wish to request your participation in this survey. Please access the survey questionnaire through this link

At Careif we have cancelled all our events and trustees are meeting remotely during this period.
