The majority of south-west residents say their health has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The survey was completed by 155 people and 93 per cent said they had experienced symptoms of depression.
More than half of the respondents said uncertainty about the future was their greatest concern, while 22 per cent said they found it difficult spending the majority of time at home.
A further 15 per cent of respondents said they were fearful about contracting coronavirus, while 7 per cent said confusion around advice was their main concern.
Almost 40 per cent of respondents said it was the first time they had felt depressed and 93 per cent said they were concerned about a second lockdown for regional Victoria.
One person said the feeling that the crisis would never end was affecting their mental health.
"I wouldn't say I'm depressed, anxious is probably more accurate. My mental health has been affected and I'm anxious about leaving the house, especially for work," wrote another.
"I'm all about family and i haven't been able to see them," wrote one respondent.
One person said they were finding it difficult to get a job because no one was hiring.
"It feels hopeless and daunting," they wrote.
"Many things - uncertainty, lack of social interaction, everything is cancelled so no goals to work towards etc," wrote another.
Another person said their family lives in South Australia and this was the longest period of time they had gone without seeing them.
"The unknown of when I'll be able to see them hurts, scares and angers me," the respondent wrote.
Another person said they were feeling depressed because they had lost their business during the crisis.
There were mixed thoughts about whether regional Victoria should enter a second lockdown.
"Financial economy is already bad enough," wrote one person. "I think it need to be done and not reopened until we have two weeks clear with no new infections," wrote another.
