Keeping Blue Monday at bay

The third Monday of January has been awarded the ‘gloomy title’ due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, cold dark nights and the arrival of unpaid credit card bills.

Now, the Samaritans charity are hoping a simple cup of tea can help connect people for a campaign they are calling ‘Brew Monday’.

Life can be tough any time of the year, and 2020 has brought lots of challenges for us all in work and in our personal lives. Brew Monday aims to get people talking, not just about tea, but about anything that may be bothering them.

This year, we encourage you to get talking. Involve your residents and patients, arrange a coffee morning or even host your own Virtual Brew Monday with friends and families!
