‘Blue Monday’ is the third Monday in January. It’s the day that is allegedly the most depressing day of the year. Weather’s generally a bit rotten, overspending at Christmas or in the Sales means that we’re all desperately looking forward to the next pay packet arriving, or we’re rethinking our options after the start of the New Year.
Mental Health Research UK is aiming to raise awareness of depression and seasonal affective disorder with its annual campaign, ‘Blooming Monday’. It is calling on people to dress in colourful clothing to raise money for research into treatments.
Anyone taking part is asked to make a donation of £2 to MHRUK by texting BLOO22 to 70070. To find out more visit www.blooming-monday.com
