Surviving Christmas 2017

Christmas can be stressful

Although Christmas is meant to be a happy and joyful time, this isn't how everyone feels at this time of the year. Christmas can be a stressful time for many people.  Some people find that the Christmas spirit can be spoilt by:

  • Money worries
  • Feelings of being alone
  • Family arguments
  • Separation and divorce
  • Bereavement
  • Becoming a step-family
  • Health worries

Some people find Christmas time difficult because of marital break-up, or being separated from their family and children. The emphasis on family, friends and shared good times during the 'festive season' can make people feel sad.

The attached a leaflet from CAHMS, "Family Christmas Survival Guide 2017", could help to give you some ideas to ease the stress and contact details of various organisations that could provide some support.
