Keeping You and Your Team Safe and Well

For all sorts of reasons, the end of a year and the beginning of a new year can bring many challenges. It's a time of year that often puts pressure on us. You may find Christmas stressful because of other events in your life. You may also feel alone or left out because everyone else seems happy when you're not.

Research shows that the Christmas period often brings with it a reported increase in police call-outs for incidents of domestic abuse. Also, whilst the start of the new year brings the hope of a fresh start for many, for others it creates an emotional low period often referred to as the “New Year's blues.” In fact, feelings of depression, anxiety, nervousness and even dread are quite common during the first few weeks of January.

Integrated Care Northamptonshire, in partnership with Citizens Advice, Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service and NHS mental health practitioners, will be hosting two online events as part of our Leadership Matters Conversations series on Tuesday 5 December and Tuesday 30 January to support you and your team over Christmas and New Year. The following topics will be discussed:

Tuesday 5 December 2023 – 10.30am to 12pm

  • Depression
  • Loneliness
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Wellbeing tips and further support

Tuesday 30 January 2024 – 10.30am to 12pm

  • Managing Stress
  • Debt Management
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Wellbeing tips and further support
