The post Christmas period and subsequent winter months can be a time when debt, loneliness, relationship breakdowns, family tension, grief and the bad weather can snowball into an overwhelming sense of anxiety or inadequacy.
Tony McLaren, Breathing Space National Coordinator, said:
"Calls to Breathing Space usually increase after the festive period and going into January and February. It's important that people pick up the phone and talk through any concerns they have. Speaking to someone about how you are feeling can really put things in perspective and help you get the support you need. Our advisors can also signpost to local organisations and services that can offer specialist support if required."
Call Breathing Space in strict confidence on 0800 83 85 87 to talk about what you are going through.
