Christmas Help & Contacts | LIFESTYLE


Christmas is not a great time of year for everyone.  According to a Times article in November, depression, anxiety, family issues and bereavement are ranked as the most cited reasons for someone to self harm over the festive period.  I'm not going to pretend that I know how this feels, but I want you all to be safe during this time - if you're having a rough time, please use some of the below contacts to keep yourself from harm and if you feel in danger at any point.  

No one has to go through this alone.  Remember, you are important and you do matter - make yourself a priority.
