ABSTRACT

Novel Corona (COVID-19) has created unprecedented situation in society and Lockdown administered by Governments has confined people within the four walls of home. Deviation from normal course of action can disturb mental well-being. This comprehensive cross-sectional study was conducted to ascertain the status of mental well-being of the people in the state of Uttar Pradesh during novel corona lockdown phase I (March 25-April 14, 2020). Data was collected by using a self developed questionnaire from a sample of 450 people by using snowball sampling methods and analysed statistically using t test and one way ANOVA test. Results reveal that majority of people were found in average mental well-being level, and they do not differ significantly in terms of mental well-being on the basis of gender, employment, age group, family set up and place of living. Study concludes that people are not much worried about the lockdown and facing it with positivity so far.
