Council encouraging people to reconnect on Brew Monday and help combat…

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is urging people to take some time for themselves during Brew Monday and not be alone or suffer in silence.

Brew Monday is about taking some time out of your day to stop and give yourself some time and include in meaningful conversation with friends, family or maybe already your neighbour.

Adam Gibson, public health rule for mental health and suicide prevention at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “During this time of year, it’s likely that the cold weather and dark nights can really play havoc on your mental health.

“Not getting as much vitamin D from sunlight or being unable to use time outdoors can really affect your mood.

“Supporting one another with a simple phone call, video call or getting together safely (Covid permitting) to have a cuppa and a biscuit can give your day more meaning and can really raise morale.”
