For many people, Christmas is not about sparkling lights, gifts and celebrations. Those amongst us that do not have the support of family or friends, Christmas can be a time of loneliness.
With media attention on the happy stories over the festive period, some people can feel left out and depressed. If you need support over the Christmas and New Year, make sure you reach out and talk to one of the thousands of people who will be volunteering their time over the holidays to support you and others.
These groups will be working over the holidays, so if you need support, please let them know.
