Blue Monday is set to take place on Monday 17 January 2022. This marks the supposedly “most depressing day of the year.” Whilst the come-down after the festive period is undeniable — many are worn out from running from pillar to post and entertaining those family members, who for the most part, are successfully avoided. However, there has been growing criticism in previous years over the toll such a day takes on individuals who are already struggling with their mental health. Many worry in advance, thinking the Monday will be gloomier than all others. As such, it’s important for employers to leverage their stance on this carefully, to ensure they are supporting their people in the best possible way.
