Staying well during the holiday season – 2021 Edition

This time of year can be difficult. Add to this a new COVID variant, coming out of lockdown and opening up, there are many situations that might increase anxieties this year. If things start to feel overwhelming, please reach out to support services, links for which we have provided here.

As with every December, WSRC have collated a list of interesting articles and content that you might like to read/view. You can add some ideas from these for your self-care toolbox if you like.

Services that are available 24 hours a day:


  • Visit Mind Guide to locate support services in your area.
  • Clevertar is an app that will help people learn about managing their anxiety and depression. It’s free from the App Store or Google Play, just use the code word ‘wentwest’ to access it.

Don’t forget you can refer to these links and others on our Where to get help page and this great list on Beyond Blue too. If you need help, we encourage you to reach out to these services or any existing support that you have.
