Usage of eMental Health & eHealth supports by young adults during COVID-19 lockdown
This report presents results of a survey on usage of digital tools (apps and remote consultation) to support physical and mental health and wellbeing. The survey took place at the end of May 2020, during the period since the first COVID-19 restrictions began.
Respondents were from a large market research panel comprising mainly young adults (and mainly students) in the core third level student age range (18-24).
During our Coalition Conversations series, we connected with experts across the mental health sector and facilitates discussions on important topics during this unprecedented time.
The aim of this webinar series is to provide a space to explore the impacts of COVID-19 on the mental health sector and the new context we now find ourselves in. Full episodes are available to play back at any time.
