PLUS launched our Surviving Christmas helpline card this week. The handy wallet size card offers practical tips on how to cope with the added stresses the festive season brings and provides telephone numbers for when extra help is needed. We have also gathered a range of Christmas fact sheets including Depression at Christmas, Bereaved at Christmas and Coping with Eating disorders at Christmas, Scottish Families Affected by Drugs Festive Booklet available to download at our information website Mental Wealth Perthshire.
PLUS manager Susan Scott said;
“If you have a mental health issue Christmas is a difficult time because many organisations and services close down for the holidays. Having access to information on what you can do to help yourself means people aren’t left not knowing where to turn. We are very thankful to P&K council for their financial support for this very valuable resource”
This year we have also produced a Polish version of the card.
Pop into your local library to pick one up or visit www.mentalwealthperthshire.org.uk for an online version and other resources to help get through the festive season. Phone PLUS 01738 626242.
