The 22nd Meeting of Social Workers was held in Niš, from 19 to 21 October 2016. The focus of this meeting was the challenges of growing up in the world of modern technologies. This international meeting was organised by the Social Welfare Centre St. Sava and it gathered many professionals from the region.
Following the previously published results of the research of the Zagreb Child and Youth Protection Center (REPORT: Some aspects of mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, preliminary research results) in which almost 1500 people participated, we bring you a new infographic with percentages of individuals, or elevated scores on scales that measure anxiety, depression, and stress.
Additionally, graphs with percentages of individuals are shown with regard to the degree of elevation of results on the previously mentioned scales, ie redistribution into categories of mild, moderate, severe or extremely severe elevations of anxiety, depression or stress. From the graph it can be seen that as many as 43% of adult citizens to some extent experience increased anxiety, 55% of citizens have an increased sense of stress, and 33% an increased level of depression.
