  • we are facing a mental health crisis.

  • And according to the O.

  • N s, which is the Office of National Statistics, depression in this country has doubled, doubled.

  • And you could see this headline here from the Express.

  • The star depressions has doubled during the pandemic.

  • These were measured from February pre covert lock down days and this These are the current stats and pay attention to what I'm about to tell you, because you know, it is gonna be hard for me even to say to you right now, almost one in five adults in the U.

  • K.

  • That's 19.2% of you and me are currently experiencing some form of depression right now, and please type in the comments right now and tell me if that's you Tell me right now.

  • Tell me if it's you tell me your name.

  • Say yes or tell me what you're going through right now.

  • I really want to hear from you.

  • Um, that is a sobering statistic.

  • One in five people out there is suffering from some poor, some type of depression, and that is up from 9.7% which was more like one in 10 people back in February before the pandemic.

  • That is a massive, massive increase, and it has dangerous, dangerous effects.

  • Let's look at some of those eating disorders eating disorders.

  • Very tragic.

  • Beat, which is a charity for people with eating disorders in the U.

  • K, has seen a 73% surge in people accessing them for help.

  • And you can see this headline here from the BBC News going up here on the screen and you see it coronavirus living with eating disorders in lock down.

  • This is Riel, and this is only one of the many reasons or any effects of our mental health.

  • And the truth is this.

  • It's a It's the increased time spent with family, the lack of gym facilities, which I want to talk about with Nick Win Comb and an upset to the routine that is intensifying these eating disorder issues.

  • But it gets worse.

  • The crisis is hitting our young people the hardest, and you can see by this headline here and again.

  • This is hard to hard to watch and hard to read, but we see a doubling in the number of urgent referrals for Children with eating disorders.

  • You can see this sharp rise in the number of Children England seeking help for eating disorders.

  • That's by the guardian itself.

  • But it gets worse.

  • Anxiety, loneliness, panic and hopelessness.

  • And please type in the chat right now and tell me if you're suffering from this and tell me about it.

  • You know, maybe you need someone to talk to.

  • Maybe you've got no one to talk to.

  • I'm here, so please type in the chat.

  • You know, let's talk about this right now when you talk about it more, and when I tell you about some of these statistics there again, very hard to listen to.

  • But we all know it's really because we're all feeling this out there and I'll put these up on the screen right now as I read them off.

  • And these are the real facts.

  • And again, this is hard to watch.

  • 49% which is half of the population in the UK, has felt anxious during the lock down.

  • One in two people 21% or more than one in five people have felt lonely.

  • 70% or one in six people have felt hopeless during the lock down, and 12% that's one and eight people have felt panicked during the lock down.

  • Look at those numbers.

  • They're very hard to believe, but it gets much worse and this is suicide.

  • Suicide is something tragic.

  • It's something very hard to talk about.

  • We just saw comment coming through about that.

  • It's a very, very hard thing to deal with in process because we all feel responsible.

  • And here's a quote by one of our members of our London ambulance service.

  • This came from October 28th, 2020.

  • So just less than three months ago, and it said this.

  • And I quote, This comes from our London ambulance service and they say, quote sadly, the number of suicide and attempted suicide incidents we attend are increasing and wait for these numbers Are crews now attend an average of 37 suicides or attempted suicides per day per day, compared to 22 in 2019 and 17 5 years ago, 17 5 years ago to 37 per day.

  • Does that sound acceptable?

  • Does that sound worth the price of a lock down these air shocking numbers?

  • Indeed, and Samaritans, which is the largest mental health charity here in the UK describing the trend, particularly amongst young people, as quote unquote extremely worrying and let me show some of the statistics that they have have published.

  • 10% is the proportion of people who have experienced suicidal thoughts.

  • 19% of young people were more likely to report suicidal thoughts, and 21% that's one in five unemployed people reported suicidal thoughts.

  • And again, that's a telling statistic right there.

  • If you're unemployed, it doubles the chance of you having suicidal thoughts.

  • Are you starting to see the connection here?

  • Are you starting to see the connection?

  • Lower economic output, lower lower employment, higher unemployment, worst mental health, more suicide thoughts.

  • It's all linked and you can see it here.

  • And yet you're politicians.

  • Don't talk about this every day.

  • They show you the daily number.

  • They put that in your face and say it's time to lock down because of this number Over here, they're not talking about the long term lives lost.

we are facing a mental health crisis.
