January has a reputation for being the gloomiest month of the year, with many people feeling the effects of the cold weather, dark days, and post-Christmas blues. To help lighten the load, you can share the warmth this winter by getting involved with Samaritans’ Brew Monday.
At Oxfordshire Mind, we’re supporting Samaritans’ Brew Monday because we want everyone to be able to talk about mental health and seek help when needed. We know the difference a good conversation can make, so why not kickstart the New Year by getting together for a cuppa with your colleagues?
“Samaritans’ Brew Monday is a great way to start the year as you mean to go on – by prioritising workplace wellbeing and encouraging open conversation around mental health.Dan Knowles, Chief Executive, Oxfordshire Mind
“Knowing that a listening ear and a supportive conversation is close by can be so powerful in helping someone come forward to access support they may need to recover and stay well – now and all year round.”
Choose any Monday in January or February, or anytime that’s good for you, to get people together and connect over a hot drink (and maybe a biscuit or two!).
