Support available to those struggling to cope over Christmas

Leamington Editorial 23rd Dec, 2017   0

SUPPORT is being offered over Christmas to those who are vulnerable, lonely or struggling to cope.

Mental health and wellbeing support services are available across Warwickshire, either face to face, online or over the phone.

Warwickshire County Council has recommended the following –

– For online assistance visit for courses, peer support and online therapy.

– To chat on the phone or via instant message visit

– And to speak to someone in person at Warwickshire Wellbeing Hubs visit for details on drop-in and walk-in sessions.

Warwickshire County Council has also reminded residents there are a number of self-help books available at the library.

Health spokesperson Coun Les Caborn said: “The county council is raising awareness of the wide range of support services on offer to help people who are feeling low, stressed or struggling to cope over the Christmas period, which we know can prove to be a challenging and lonely time for some.

“These services are available throughout Christmas and accessible to all. Go online, pick up the telephone or meet with support workers who are there to help those in need during the festive season.

“Christmas is often a happy time of celebration, however not everyone has this experience, which is why we promote these support services to help them through this sometimes difficult time of year.”
