Crisis support for the festive period 2020

Although the festive period is the season of cheer for many, it can also be a challenging time if you are struggling with your mental wellbeing.

Depression and anxiety can make it difficult to enjoy the festivities and the pressures of Christmas and New Year can make it an extremely stressful, overwhelming and sometimes lonely time of the year. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will undoubtedly add to this, and the uncertainty of what the next few months will hold makes this a concerning time for many.

Our team have put together a useful booklet (PDF) that has lots of helpful information, advice and details of where you can access support over the festive season.

You will find the following information:

  • Self-help tips for the festive period
  • Safe havens
  • Crisis and advice helplines
  • Managing your money
  • Food banks
  • Homeless shelters
  • Staying connected
