Samaritans Brew Monday will kick off on 18 January, the third Monday in January, which is usually known as ‘Blue Monday’ because of the financial pressures of Christmas, the weather or, for some, increased weight gain. Samaritans are turning this day on its head and into something positive by encouraging people to contact each other over a warming virtual cuppa.
Reach out to a friend, family member or colleague for a virtual cuppa and a chat. It doesn’t have to be a Monday or a cup of tea, just taking time to really listen to another person could help them work through what’s on their mind.
Because now more than ever, sharing a cuppa is more than a drink – it’s about reaching out, checking in and staying connected.
Have a Brew Monday, any Monday, or a day that’s good for you.
Here are a few ways you can connect virtually:
- Group audio/video calling is available on Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp (up to 4 people on a call) and Facebook messenger.
- A phone call or conference call can work just as well for connecting with people, especially for those not comfortable on camera.
And don’t forget, if you use your virtual get-together to raise money for Samaritans, you’ll help give people having a tough time somewhere to turn when they need to talk. Just £5 can help us answer a call for help.
