Blog: Olly WehringFeeling Blue on Monday? Help is at hand

Olly Wehring | 15 January 2018

It may not be scientific, but the third Monday in January has been coined 'Blue Monday' - the most depressing day of the year. Dreamed up in the UK by a psychologist commissioned by a holiday company 14 years ago, there's method in the madness: Lousy weather, post-Christmas blues, last pay-day feels ages ago, next pay-day barely on the horizon...

So, UK drinks charity The Benevolent has chosen today to launch a campaign to highlight the importance of mental wellbeing. '#NotAlone' is designed to "encourage members of the trade to speak freely about mental health issues within the workplace, creating a stigma-free environment, reminding both employers and employees that The Benevolent is here with professionals at hand who can help you".

Full details of the activation can be found here, while an online survey, which will help The Benevolent learn what issues are affecting individuals in our industry, can be accessed here.
