Get practical tips on looking after the mental health of yourself and those around you, on our special ‘Blue Monday’ webinar.

The webinar will be presented by Penny Aspinall, who will be using her 25 years’ experience as a counsellor and trainer to provide insight and advice into how you can maintain your wellbeing.

This session will provide information and practical ideas on how you can protect your own mental health and identify signs of when we, or those close to us, are starting to struggle. 

Blue Monday is the name given to the third Monday in January, commonly referred to as the most depressing day of the year. Following the challenging events of 2020, we want to do all we can to help you remain healthy over the winter months.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Understand the mental health continuum and recognise when to seek help
  • Deal with and alleviate stress
  • Realise the unhelpful impact of perfectionism and presenteeism on our mental health and how to address it
  • Manage your online activities to maintain your digital wellbeing
