Mental Health During Lockdown

*** Disclaimer: In this episode we are going to be talking about mental health conditions and in particular suicidal thoughts and attempts. Please be aware that some people may find some of the content upsetting.***

Hi everyone, today Matt Rann is joining the episode and we are talking about mental health. With everything that is going on in the world with the coronavirus pandemic, mental health is something that is affecting many people, including both children and adults. 

We are chatting about how mental health is underwritten for things like life insurance, how the insurance sector is currently responding to mental health and our thoughts on how insurance offerings could be improved.

The key takeaways:

  • Statistics regarding mental health during the coronavirus lockdown.
  • Debate over the classification of mental health symptoms.
  • A case study of arranging life insurance and income protection for someone living with Bipolar.

Next time, Roy McLoughlin will be back hosting with me and we will be chatting to Andrew Montlake.
