Many of us struggle at this time of year, when the days grow shorter and the cold sets in, but this year has particular challenges. We will be looking at the struggles we are facing and holding space for the extra pressure that puts on our mental health and wellbeing. How do we support ourselves and each other during difficult times? Sometimes we might wish there was some kind of textbook for what to do during a mental health crisis. The answer lies in practicing kindness — although that may not look like what you’d expect. Together, let us create a Book of Kindness, to guide us towards compassion, connection, and understanding.
