The third Monday in January has been designated “Blue Monday” due to a combination of bad weather, post-holiday debts and people’s frustrations that their New Year resolutions are already proving impossible to maintain. For many of us, particularly if we are experiencing mental illness and distress, any day of the week can be a blue one. Depression can be particularly pertinent going through the various life transitions – from becoming a new mum and managing expectations, through to divorce, mid-life and menopause.

These are individuals with pre-existing mental illness whose symptoms have been exacerbated by the crisis. This figure was revealed in the initial assessment that new service users undergo to determine their background, current situation and what they may need support with. Louise Kermode, Jami’s director of services, said: “The horrific events in Israel and Gaza and the rising antisemitism that it has sparked, have impacted so many members of the community.

November marks Men’s Mental Health Month, an annual campaign dedicated to raising awareness about the mental health challenges faced by men.

This is such an unprecedent and terrible time for us all. Many of us feel fear, anger, and especially helplessness both with the situation in Israel and with antisemitism at home. Each of us will have our coping mechanisms, which most of the time are sufficient. This, however, is not one of those ordinary times. We are faced with such uncertainty that many of us are understandably anxious and fearful. It is absolutely OK, not to feel OK. CST, in partnership with Jami, the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Jewish Leadership Council and PaJes, have put together some top tips, which we hope ..read more
