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.
