The third Monday of the year, also known as Blue Monday, is considered by many as the year’s most depressing day. We want you to know that your mental health is important and that support is available.

The holiday season is over and many people struggle to find the motivation to get through the cold, dark days and expectations for the year ahead feel overwhelming. This can lead to frustration and low self-esteem.

These gloomy feelings can be worsened by the financial pressure caused by holiday spending, as well as all the insecurities brought by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mental health challenges can also happen at any time of the year to anyone. Take this as a reminder to do things that support your wellbeing. You are important and if you are struggling to be yourself and find motivation, please reach out for support.
