As we come out of Level 5 lockdown, many people are experiencing additional feelings of isolation, anxiety and distress as well as enduring depression, bi-polar disorder and other challenges with their mental health. These feelings are often further exacerbated during this holiday season, as people can sometimes contrast their own sadness with other peoples joy.
If you, or those with whom you work wish to connect with people in relation to your mental wellbeing, please consider using the Phone In and Zoom Support & Self Care Groups, the Support Line or Support Mail, now and during the holiday season.
These services provide support, coping skills and information – and most importantly help people who are in distress to know and feel that they are not alone in their experience.
Wishing you all well with the work you are doing. Take care of your selves.
