Brits’ health, wealth and happiness remains at a ten year low

The UK’s happiness is at a record low, with the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, combined with the cost-of-living crisis and the war in the Ukraine having a devastating effect on the overall wellbeing of people living in the UK. Ethnic minorities are suffering the most, according to the latest findings of the LifeSearch Health, Wealth & Happiness 2022 Index or

Released for Mental Health Awareness Week this week, their index commissioned with the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr), alongside consumer insights from among 500 UK ethnic minorities and 2,000 adults in the UK,  shows Brits’ overall wellbeing score at ten-year low.

Three-quarters (74%) of adults polled in April 2022 said their mental health has been negatively impacted in the last two years and of these, the “rising cost of living” (28%), closely followed by “Covid restrictions” (27%), were the top causes.

Ryan spoke to Debbie Kennedy, CEO of Lifesearch and Nina Skero, CEO of the Centre of Economics and Business Research.
