Get together online and have a Brew Monday with your friends, family & colleagues
This Monday (18th January) is known worldwide as Blue Monday, which is why Samaritans are encouraging everyone to turn it into a Brew Monday and take the opportunity to reach out to someone.
With current restrictions that we are all living under, it is easy to feel alone with your problems and this can have a big impact on your mental health. That's why we are encouraging you to reach out to a friend, family member or work colleague for a virtual cuppa and a chat. Because, now more than ever, sharing a cuppa with people allows us to feel more connected to the people around us.
And, events for Brew Monday don't just have to happen on a Monday, so you can have your cuppa on any day of the week.
