Christmas is a time to reflect on the year that’s been – the joys, the sorrows and everything in between.
However, the stress of the holiday season can also exacerbate symptoms of stress, grief and depression.
Lifeline have released a Holiday Guide with practical tips, tools and resources to help you look after yourself and your loved ones throughout this season, including:
- Why the holiday season can be so hard
- Managing financial stress
- Managing loneliness
- Managing overall wellbeing
- How to feel connected
- Supporting loved ones
- Supporting children and young people
The guide includes articles, techniques, quizzes, testimonials and resources that individuals can complete at their own pace.
Lifeline’s 24/7 phone service, text and chat channels will remain fully operational during the holiday period.
If you or anyone you know needs help – call Lifeline on 13 11 14. For more information, visit the Lifeline Australia website.
