CHRISTMAS IS KNOWN FOR THE HO HO HO AND THE MISTLETOE (TOE TOE), BUT NOT EVERYONE FEELS THE FESTIVE CHEER DURING THE FESTIVE SEASON.
It’s normal to have ups and downs at Christmas, just like any other time of the year – even more so in 2021. From worrying about budgets, to choosing who to spend your time with – it’s a time that can be full of stresses and struggles. If you’re feeling the winter blues, or just a bit sad at Christmas, you’re not alone.
If you’re struggling this Christmas – CALM’s helpline and webchat is open every day from 5pm – midnight, including on Christmas Day. If you’re feeling lonely, anxious or depressed at Christmas, or you’re not really sure how you feel, then talking to someone can help. CALM’s professional helpline staff are on hand to chat about whatever you’re going through – whether that’s Christmas related or not. Chats are confidential, free and anonymous, and nothing is too big or too small to chat about.
