Get together online and have a Brew Monday for mental health on Monday 18th January 2021
The 3rd Monday in January, thought to be Blue Monday, is being turned into ‘Brew Monday’ to encourage everyone to reach out to someone.
Feeling alone with your problems can have a big impact on your mental health, so we are encouraging you to reach out to a friend, family member, or colleague for a virtual cuppa and a chat.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be Monday, or a cup of tea, the important thing is to take time to really listen to another person and allow them to work through what’s on their mind.
Because now more than ever, sharing a cuppa is more than just sharing a drink - it’s reaching out, checking in, and staying connected.
Share the warmth and socialise safely in support bubbles or connect virtually. Connect with a friend or family member over the phone, or have a group call using one of the many available online resources - the ones we all learned to use last year! (Skype, Teams, WhatsApp, Zoom, Facebook...)
Brew together and help raise money for Samaritans
By connecting and helping someone...and indeed yourself...you can also offer the gift forward to help us stay open and ready to pick up the phone to that person who has nowhere else to turn.
You can donate through our Donations Page, or by texting CHESTER3 to 70085 to donate £3 (Texts cost £3 + the standard rate message) To vary amount text CHESTERsum, eg CHESTER10 for £10.
Brew at home or at work!
Get together for a virtual cuppa at home or together at work and help raise money for Samaritans Chester so someone having a tough time has somewhere to turn when they need to talk.
Share your virtual screenshots on Social using #BrewMonday and #ChesterSamaritans
