Economic uncertainty has a negative impact on social health.
Debate on the benefits and disadvantages of Brescia dominated political debates on the island for two years, during which time it managed to divide both families and communities and trigger panic preparations for the economy of the possibility of Brussels and Brussels, even if they can not reach an agreement on relations after leaving.
Until now, the state does not pay attention to the impact of burka or the uncertainty caused by this process on the mental health of the British. That's why researchers from Royal College London work on it, the French news agency AFP reported.
In a study covering the period prior to June 23, 2016, when a referendum on race was held, and the later period, the monthly data for the prescription of antidepressants in all 326 constituencies in England were examined and compared to the data for prescribing other drugs.
Survey: Burst uncertainty
The researchers, given the fact that the outcome of the referendum on the violation of surprise, which led to considerable uncertainty about the effects on the British economy and society, are interested in whether this has been reflected in greater use of antidepressants.
The study first calculates the defined daily dose of antidepressants – this is the average maintenance dose that the patient received in one day for the main or most common indication for the drug, thus ensuring an appropriate comparison with other types of drugs.
13.4 percent more prescribed antidepressants
On this basis, they came to the conclusion that after the referendum on prescribing, the volume of prescribed antidepressants compared to other prescribed drugs increased by 13.4 percent.
Although the results of the referendum were difficult to link with the consumption of antidepressants, the fact that its increase compared to the consumption of other prescription drugs was significantly commented on by the AFP lecturer at Royal College and Harvard Professor
. He also recalled that more and more publications show that economic uncertainty can have a negative impact on mental health.
"Uncertainty about service and concerns about the financial future of an individual is associated with poorer health. Any case that causes uncertainty and worries can have a negative effect"
The study also indicated that the results should not mean that the British nation's atmosphere as a whole has deteriorated after the breXet referendum. For example, Brexit's upper proxies can even discover that their well-being has improved substantially in weeks after the vote.
However, Vandoros stressed that the shocking outcome of the referendum and the turmoil that followed was "the most likely explanation" of the relative increase in the use of antidepressants.
The authors of the study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, therefore noted that the government in London should do more in times of political and economic uncertainty when it comes to mental health counseling.
