Now that we are in 2023, some of us have tried to go back to normal and put distance between ourselves and the pandemic, while some feel the pandemic is still on as they continue to navigate the ways their lives were impacted by the global event.

But BBC News released a study, claiming the majority of the global population's mental health was not impacted beyond a "minimal" level from the pandemic.

The title of the study was simply Mental health crisis from pandemic was minimal - study.

To complete their research, 137 mental health studies were evaluated for data, from which they were able to conclude the average person suffered from "minimal" psychological effects from the pandemic.

But there was a dramatic caveat at the end of the study recap:

"The review did not look at lower-income countries, or specifically focus on children, young people and those with existing problems, the groups most likely affected, experts say, and risks hiding important effects among disadvantaged groups."

After seeing the study drop, Twitter had a lot to say.

Some were furious about the study's claims, the overly simplistic title and the lack of representation of the people most impacted by the pandemic: people of color, women, the elderly, people with disabilities and young children who had to go through milestones in a very strange, unprecedented world.

But others reflected on how they coped with their minimal mental health crisis.

Some of the reactions were hilariously relatable.

While there were people who were took the pandemic in stride, those people also likely had resources the average person did not, like greater financial stability, access to childcare and different working circumstances.

Because the truth is, the majority of people were deeply impacted and may still be feeling the effects now.
