The summer lockdown was particularly difficult for people already struggling with their mental health, a winter one could be even worse and may have a negative impact on all of us - with cold, dark nights and limited social contact / please keep a lookout for your family, friends, fellow North End fans or neighbours.

Mental health issues related to our lockdown and the pandemic are especially hard for people with depression and or anxiety.
