Canadians are struggling with changes to routines and added feelings of uncertainty as impacts from the pandemic continue. As a result, many feel the wave of low emotions that are linked to the winter blues.
According to a recent study by the Canadian Mental Health Association, two in five Canadians, or 40%, say their mental health has deteriorated since the onset of the pandemic.
Blue Monday is traditionally thought of as the saddest day of the year due to stressors such as post-holiday blues, weight gain, cold dark days, failure to stick to New Year’s resolutions and the arrival of holiday bills.
On Monday, January 16, Rogers Community 20 will be holding their “Kickback” program from 1 p.m. – 7 p.m. The program will be addressing relevant mental health topics to mark Blue Monday. Several community agencies will be participating in this program, including staff from CMHA Brant Haldimand Norfolk. Make sure to tune in!
