The annual "Blue Monday" is nearly upon us. This is the name given to the third Monday in January, coined as the most depressing day of the year. Blue Monday has been around since 2005, when a UK travel company claimed to have established the date through an “equation”.
But the term “blue Monday” dates way back to the 1830’s - American literature referred to the “hungover state” of the labour workforce after a weekend spent drinking and associated the colour blue with a depressed state of mind.
The term has stuck, though, and the third Monday of January has been awarded the gloomy title of “Blue Monday” thanks to a combination of post-Christmas moodiness, cold dark nights and the arrival of unpaid credit card bills! The post-Christmas mood-dip and the weather may well aﬀect us adversely, but depression is an everyday phenomenon for those who truly suﬀer, and those suﬀerers feel that trivialising it as a one day event only adds to their despair. But if we can use this day to raise awareness and open up a conversation about mental health, that can only be a good thing.
It can provide a mental roadmap which positively clariﬁes your view of the world and it can return to you your self- control.

Together, we choose the correct approach to meet your individual needs.
