Christmas: It’s not the most wonderful time of the year for some young people!
Meic, the national helpline for young people in Wales states that hundreds of young people need someone to talk to at Christmastime – with relationships the main issue for three of the last four years.
Check out this challenging video which reflects on personal experience over Christmas, when the festive period isn’t the most wonderful time of the year:
“Behind the glitz and glam, presents and paper, many young people struggle at Christmas. We’ve heard from so many who’ve been struggling with money, relationships, mental health, rights, and more.” – Stephanie Hoffman, Head of Meic
