Society tells us that Christmas should be a time of joy and celebration. However, for those struggling with low mood or depression, the pressure and constant reminder that you ‘should’ be happy can make you feel even worse.

If you are struggling with depression over this Christmas period, it’s so important to be kind to yourself. We would encourage you to keep connected with friends and family, even chat to them about how you’re feeling. They may be able to reassure you and protect you from the expectations of the Christmas season. Below are some other resources and helplines that can support you over this period.
