Kooth - Your Online Mental Wellbeing Community

There are many reasons why you might not be feeling the Christmas spirit this year:  it could be worries about Covid, struggles with loneliness, social anxiety, family difficulties or dealing with the loss of a loved one. These issues can be particularly hard to talk about this time of year, as it may feel like everyone would rather try and enjoy the festivities than listen to someone’s problems. This is why it’s so important to know you’re not alone in any hard times you’re experiencing. 

If you ever feel you don’t know who to talk to over the festive season, Kooth is open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day with our team of counsellors available for you to talk to. Sometimes it can help just to know you’re not alone in what you’re feeling! Click here to visit Kooth at anytime.
