We already know the wonderful, courageous and selfless job our NHS staff are doing to keep looking after us all, but we should not forget the emotional and psychological turmoil these workers must be going through. Their tremendous support, not just to patients but to each other, is amazing. It’s heartening to see this but, as the pandemic continues, these people will face new challenges on a daily basis, and it’s therefore more important than ever that they themselves are able to access resources to help them manage their wellbeing…

LIGHT IN THE SHADE Thank you for Grazia’s mental health life skills (20 Apr). I am on a waiting list to access MBT (mentalisation-based treatment) via the NHS, which has now been deferred for an unknown period due to the Covid-19 crisis. Although I completely understand, it’s a therapy I’ve already waited over a year to access. I am sure there are many others who are also in my position. So thank you for highlighting the effect this strange period is having on people’s mental health. Please do continue to share any advice and tips on how to continue throughout this time. It’s a real struggle every day, but Grazia offers me some much-needed light relief in my week. Charlotte…

welcome to the issue

IF OUR PERIOD of lockdown could be boiled down to a symbol, perhaps it would be the cherry blossom, which was in bloom as coronavirus reached its peak in the UK, reminding us all that nature was thriving as the world slowed down. So, for this issue of Grazia we asked two of Britain’s most talented creatives – Erdem and Richard Quinn – to design an image around the theme of nature for the cover, and others at the helm of the $2.4 trillion global fashion industry to show us how their perspective has changed: see page 44. One of the themes that emerges is slowing down; and that is happening in Grazia’s world too because, for the next few months, each issue will be on sale for a fortnight.…

we need a mix of voices to end the ‘rough sex’ defence

“As calls to domestic abuse hotlines continue to soar during lockdown, last week, the Domestic Abuse Bill was back in Parliament. For months, Grazia and campaign group We Can’t Consent To This have been fighting for it to include a ban on the ‘rough sex’ defence, whereby men claim death or injury was due to a consensual sex game gone wrong. During debate in the Commons, MP Mark Fletcher spoke movingly about his own childhood experience of domestic violence: a stepdad who ‘reigned with physical terror’. It was a reminder that we need a mix of voices on this topic. Everyone must get behind ending this vile injustice.”…

the joy of letting go? yeah… how does that work, exactly?

AT TIMES, over the years, I’ve wondered what it might take to end my preoccupation with my physical appearance. What sort of epic life shift might make me less bothered about my skin, hair, brows and bod; wardrobe, posture, demeanour, look . Would let me finally see the pitiful folly of all the bad-feminist years and bad-feminist quid I’d frittered primping, preening, plucking and puncturing* (* with Botox needles) in compliance with a beastly, patriarchy-perpetuated idea of what looks nice. Zombie apocalypse, maybe? A cancer diagnosis? The wisdom only age can bring? Six weeks into lockdown, and I know one thing: it’s gonna take a lot more than a global pandemic before that shiz goes down with me! Babes ! Corona hasn’t touched the sides on me caring how I look!
