Today we looked at how Christmas affected people in the group. Some of the issues people struggled with were; family issues, how the Winter affected them, bereavement issues, childhood memories, feeling alone, financial issues and lastly having a disruption to their weekly routine (with many places closed).
Next week we will look at ways that can help make the Christmas period a bit more bearable.
We discussed the impact of using Social Media for Choose Life @ Simpson House and how through networking and support we could have helped someone to use the tools from the group’s experiences to help keep themselves safe.
We now have 85 followers on Twitter, the word’s getting around about the group!
