On this January’s Brew Monday, join us for a cuppa to talk about how we can support youth mental health within the workplace.
What is Blue/Brew Monday?
The third Monday in January, which is usually known as ‘Blue Monday’ will be turned into something positive by encouraging people to get together over a warming virtual cuppa. “Because now more than ever, sharing a cuppa is more than a drink – it’s about reaching out, checking in and staying connected”. Samaritans.
