Researchers at UCL have recruited over 18,000 participants to a new UK study to examine the psychological and social challenges experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The study is led by Dr Daisy Fancourt (UCL Behavioural Science & Health), who says the data will be used to help understand the challenges that people are facing. The survey results are analysed in real-time, and help to inform the advice and support given to protect mental health while staying at home.

Anyone in the UK and over the age of 18 can sign up. Participation involves answering a short online survey once a week during social isolation. To take part, please visit
