Speaking in a personal capacity, Kurcharski said it was difficult to predict how many more infections might result from the festive period, noting that while “There is no magic rule that will make you safe. It is very much a gradient of risk,” he said . But the situation in the aftermath of Christmas also matters.

And the national mental health crisis could spark reforms and movement toward better treatment. And while almost everyone is experiencing increased It was getting increasingly hard to get out of bed, said Cleetus, 23, who has bipolar disorder and helps lead a student advocacy group. “It took me a

Ministers were warned by scientists that they risked public disorder and an increase in mental health problems if they failed to relax coronavirus restrictions over Christmas.

A document by the behavioural science sub-committee of the advisory group Sage said stopping “valued” events like family gatherings and festive celebrations would fuel anger and depression and even cause “conflict with those imposing the behavioural restrictions”.

The warning contributed to the decision by all four UK nations this week, finalised at a meeting of Cobra on Tuesday, for a five-day period between 23 and 27 December when people are allowed to form Christmas bubbles with two other households.

Restrictions in Wales

Mark Drakeford, the First Minister of Wales, said that if tight restrictions had remained across the UK, people might have taken the decision into their own hands and arranged Christmas gatherings of more than three households, further fuelling the risk of transmission.

He told BBC Breakfast that the UK leaders agreed that they had to ease the rules because people would have flouted restrictions – creating further risk – if they were told Christmas had been “cancelled”.

Mental health determinants. Adolescence is a crucial period for developing and maintaining social and emotional habits important for mental well-being. Perpetration of violence is a risk-taking behaviour that can increase the likelihood of low educational attainment, injury, involvement with crime or death.

Co-occurring substance abuse problems and mental health issues are more common than many people realize. According to reports published in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Roughly 50 percent of individuals with severe mental disorders are affected by substance abuse.

Ministers were shown behavioural-science evidence that “too many people simply would not have been prepared to have gone along with such an instruction”, Mr Drakeford said.

The document says: “When people are forced to stop or suppress a valued behaviour (e.g. social mixing) this can lead to negative emotions (anger, depression) and sometimes the suppressed behaviour may be replaced by another undesirable behaviour (e.g. conflict with those imposing the behavioural restrictions; social mixing at locations that are less ‘Covid secure’).

“Promoting and supporting positive alternative behaviours may help to reduce these problems, by providing an immediate alternative source of enjoyment to reduce emotional distress. When introducing unavoidable restrictions on behaviour to reduce infection transmission it may therefore be helpful to suggest and positively encourage less risky alternative behaviour.”

The leaders of Scotland and Wales have urged people to remain cautious despite the Government’s relaxing of the coronavirus rules for Christmas, writes Chris Green.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said her “default advice” would be for people not to mix with other households over the festive period despite the temporary lifting of restrictions.

She said she would not be seeing her own parents over Christmas because she did not want to risk infecting them in the closing stages of the pandemic “for the sake of one day”.

Scotland’s national clinical director, Jason Leitch, echoed her remarks, saying he had also decided to stay away from his own parents for the same reason.

The note of caution was sounded after the four UK nations agreed a joint strategy for Christmas which will apply between 23 and 27 December.

Under the relaxed rules, people from a maximum of three households can meet indoors and stay overnight, as long as they do not extend this “bubble” any further.

Ms Sturgeon said the Scottish Government would set out the rules in more detail.

Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford said people have to approach Christmas “in a way that continues to be cautious and careful” .
