Blue Monday’s approaching. If you have mental health concerns, wellbeing worries or are feeling isolated, call us – don’t suffer in silence.
That’s the message from Live Well Kent, a one-stop shop where people can access a huge range of support services in their local community.
It’s expecting to be busy in the lead-up to Blue Monday (16 January) which has been dubbed the most depressing day of the year. Debt, the weather and time since Christmas are all said to be factors.
Live Well Kent’s Julia Hargreaves said: “Winter can be a difficult time of year for people with mental health needs and those who feel isolated. There’s a lot of support available and we’re there to help people access it. If you’re struggling on Blue Monday or at any time, please get in touch with us.”
When somebody gets in touch with Live Well Kent, it connects them to a network of charities and community organisations. A wellbeing plan is built around each person’s needs, and they can choose the help that best suits them.
Live Well Kent has helped thousands of people since its launch in April last year.
Because health and anxiety problems can sometimes be traced back to someone’s day-to-day life, the help it offers is wide ranging. People can get support with:
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Keeping active and healthy
- Meeting people and overcoming isolation
- Training and getting into work
Everyday living (money management, housing support or improving relationships with family and friends).
