According to the MENA Mental Health Report by the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA), 42 percent of people feel the epidemic has made their mental health worse, and one in ten people has experienced mental illness.

As per the MENA Mental Health Report from the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA), 44 percent of respondents have not received any communication from their employer about mental health in the previous 12 months, and only 15 percent feel ‘completely supported’ by their employer on this issue. It also discovered that 36% of persons who had a mental health problem in the previous year did not speak to anyone at work about it – a rate that jumps to 41% for women and drops to 33% for men.
Those who did confide in a coworker or manager, on the other hand, indicated they were satisfied with the reaction.
“It is apparent that the mental health burden of Covid-19 is not going away quickly, even if we have, I hope, seen the worst of this pandemic,” Francis Ingham, MPRCA, director general of the PRCA, said.

PRCA MENA believes that the report’s four conclusions would spark conversation among its members and the entire PR profession in the area. These are the conclusions:
