Blue Monday is said to be the most depressing day of the year. After the excitement of Christmas, January can be a difficult time, credit card bills arrive, resolutions go out of the window and the winter starts to feel like it’ll never end. For those who are vulnerable, January can be a critical time, and knowing where to get help can be a huge barrier to accessing support.
The Blue Monday Galleries event will showcase over 40 local organisations who offer support on money, housing, benefits, physical and mental health, energy efficiency, refugee rights, getting into work and training, volunteering and more! It will provide a unique one stop support shop for Bristol residents and offer the chance to have informal chats with a range of experts.
To get you in the mood for making positive changes there will be free massage and acupuncture sessions on offer, live music and health and wellbeing initiatives. Games and competitions will be running all day so there are plenty of chances to win some freebies too!
