In the midst of lockdown whilst some people made the most of the time at home and got round to those jobs they had been putting off for months, me included, Many made the most of the 2 hour outside permitted exercise time and explored some of the island’s historic treasures. However, for others, it offered an opportunity for individuals to ‘express themselves’ in ways which nobody could have expected.

Louisa, from Guernsey Mind, took the time during lockdown to understand how many islanders managed their mental health. She caught up with four individuals and was pleased to learn about the different ways they had found to “Express Themselves” whilst confined to their own homes. However, due to lockdown, she couldn’t complete the interviews in person so had to complete them over video call.

You can watch their interviews in the short video below. Do share how you were able to ‘Express Yourself’ during lockdown by sharing a message on social media using the hashtag #ExpressYourself.
