Blue Monday doesn’t exist!!

Blue Monday (allegedly) falls on the third Monday of January and is often referred to as the most depressing day of the year. It’s a day when the festive season is over, the weather is cold and dark, and many people are feeling the effects of the winter blues. HOWEVER, the good news is that “Blue Monday” is a complete fallacy! It was made up and has absolutely no scientific evidence to back it up. The name was reportedly coined by a psychologist in 2004 for a PR stunt after a holiday company asked him for a “formula” for the January blues. 

At Trauma Research UK, we don’t believe any day should be labelled a “Blue Day”. We understand the importance of mental health and its impact on individuals and their loved ones all year round. That’s why we are committed to providing support and resources for those struggling whenever they need it.

One of the ways we support those facing challenges is through our very successful recovery programme (FREE to members). Our trained mentors provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals to work through their emotions and break the anxiety-inducing habits they might have been carrying around for years. We encourage participants to create new ways of thinking that transform lives for the better.

We understand that days such as “Blue Monday” are a great way to raise awareness, but it’s all too easy to launch an initiative in good faith and then forget soon afterwards that reaching out and getting the help that is needed is a significant barrier for many people. We want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to get the help they need when they need it.

We are present on our social media platforms and our website 365 days of the year, sharing information, support and advice, because mental health is something that affects us all the time, and we should never feel ashamed or embarrassed to ask for help.

Together, we can challenge the blues, today, tomorrow or any day. If you or someone you know is struggling, please reach out.
