    Dear all,

    the festive season is not always an easy time. Smiles often cover pain and fear inside, like a mask worn to hide reality. Parties and festivities happen all around, but the reality of our worry is not diminished. Very often it’s heightened as we fear for our loved ones.

    At this time, please look after yourselves, granting yourself permission to take time out to have a walk, read a book, listen to music, visit friends… whatever it is that will help you to recharge, stay balanced and get through the season.

    Please know that you are not alone, and that should you need to reach out, there is this community, the Papyrus Hopeline: 0800 068 4141, Samaritans: 116 123 and local mental health Crisis Teams to turn to.

    Please keep safe as you support others

    Shalom (Deep peace)

    Hello everyone…

    What a strange time we’re living in. It’s a time of stress, worry and grief – loss of things we’ve been used to and friends and family we’re unable to see. This all takes its toll on us and those we love. If you are concerned about the change in your own mental health, do talk about it with someone you trust, speak to a health professional or call the Hopeline. If you think that someone you know is struggling then ask them directly if they are feeling suicidal. Help for both yourself and your loved one / friend is available through Papyrus Hopeline 0800 068 41 41

    Please take care and stay safe
    Shalom (Deep peace)

    Well, we’re still in semi-lockdown and it’s not easy. I suspect that many who have not struggled with poor mental health in the past are having moments of feeling quite down as we deal with all that is going on around us.

    so…

    how are you?

    Are you coping?

    For those who are living with someone who was already suicidal, are they coping?

    Don’t forget that this forum is designed as a safe space to share and get support from others who are in a similar situation, and Papyrus are also available to listen and give support and advice.

    Be safe, don’t struggle alone

    Shalom (deep peace)

    Helen
