This Christmas, we need to start talking ....

Dear <<First Name>>

Christmas is a time filled with happiness and joy, fun with friends, family and excited children.  It's also a season for caring.

For the 1 in 6 families experiencing anxiety and depression during pregnancy or early parenthood, the heightened emotions around Christmas can increase the feelings of isolation and distress.    

                                                  
 'I just wanted to hide away and weep until Christmas was over'.  

Vulnerable parents with young families may be particularly susceptible to triggers for anxiety and depression at Christmas.  The joy others feel can emphasise their desolation and loneliness.

 'I felt so lonely, guilty and desperate. Christmas was so unhappy for my family.'

A donation to the Gidget Foundation can help us to support vulnerable families through this emotionally charged holiday time. It will also help us to continue the support we provide fragile parents throughout the year.

'My partner couldn't understand my behaviour so the joy of Christmas and our marriage was destroyed by our angry and hurtful arguments'.  

Please consider a donation to the Gidget Foundation this Christmas.  
Thank you for your ongoing support.  
Wishing you a peaceful Christmas.

Kind regards,
