“90% of people see parental mental health and wellbeing as being critical to a child’s development, but in reality people do very little to prioritise themselves.

“Only 10% of parents mentioned taking the time to look after their own wellbeing when asked how they had prepared for the arrival of their baby. Worryingly, over a third of all parents (37%) expect the COVID-19pandemic to have a negative impact on their long-term mental wellbeing.

“70% of parents feel judged by others and among these parents, nearly half feel this negatively impacts their mental health.

Will Kate give a speech about her survey?

“Parental loneliness has dramatically increased during the pandemic. From 38% before to 63% as parents have been cut off from friends and family. The increase in loneliness for parents is more apparent in the most deprived areas.

“These parents are more than twice as likely as those living in the least deprived areas to say they feel lonely often or always (13% compared with5%). Compounding this, it seems there has been a rise in the proportion of parents who feel uncomfortable seeking help. For how they are feeling from 18% before the pandemic to 34% during it.

“Across the UK, communities have united powerfully to meet the challenge of unprecedented times. 40% of parents feel that community support has grown. However, parents in the most deprived areas are less likely to have experienced this increased support (33%) than elsewhere.”

What’s more, Kate is expected to present a speech outlying each of the results and their implications.
