The Repeated Assessment of Mental health in Pandemics (RAMP) study is a research project assessing the effect of COVID-19 on the mental health and wellbeing of the population. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, many of us have undergone major changes to our daily lives, such as staying away from friends and family, and limiting time outside of our homes.
We don’t yet know what effect this new situation will have on how we all think, feel and act or the impact on our households, health and lifestyle. With RAMP, we will regularly assess the mental health and wellbeing of people across the UK in order to understand the impact of COVID-19 so that we can better support people in the future.
Dr Katherine Young is the Primary Investigator.
