    It would be hilarious if the Tories were to use mental health as an excuse as to restrict measures that would protect physical health; given that they've decimated mental health services over the past decade.

    I'm in lockdown in Melbourne Australia and mental health is at extreme levels. Our premier is covering up the deaths related to mental health. Please understand the same will happen to the people in England.

    The NHS and government doesn't care about mental health anyway…
    It's not an issue that anyone really cares about.. people might as well just suffer with dignity than try and seek help only to get rejected.

    Everyone just needs to put on their big boy/big girl diaper pants and tough it out. The world isn't coming to an end so people will have to adapt to new ways to coexist with Covid 19.**If someone is lonely then go find a book to read or pray a lot to your religion.

    The next pandemic won't be mental health. It will be dealing with the mental health issues you've neglected for I dont know how long.

    I know that some people miss being around other people. I don't, as I'm not fond of my species. Why would I wish to be around other members of the human race? The species that infests our planet with overpopulation of people who over consume, over endulge, over pollute? I do not desire to spend time with rapists. The natural world and the animals in it are far superior company. Try it. You will not be lonely once you divest yourself of the things and people you think you must have, to invest yourself in those marvelous things Mother Earth provides.

    Sometimes paranoid people are correct, the government sucks, humanity sucks, psychologists suck, everyone sucks. Its not mental health, it is the observable measurable results of people. Humanity has this weird ritual where they regularly gather together and kill millions of themselves and then the survivors celebrate it. It feels like we are starting that ritual again.

    It is hardly the tax payers problem that you are not emotionally or mentally stable. I am all for helping the actually handicapped people with tax dollars. But just so princess that cant remain stable is just not the problem of tax payers to fund programs to deal with that. You are all responsible for your own mental health.

    How is being locked down going to make someone traumatized? This world is getting so weak. The people just need to sleep longer, watch tv, learn how to cook, do all of the other tasks that they couldn't do before because they were so busy working and not having time for a life. If anything the people should come out of lockdown a better person. I know I am, I have lost over 5kg and been walking 4-5km per day. I am sleeping better, reading more, and learning more. It's hard, but this is the new way of life, accept it, don't try and bring back the past, because it's gone.
