Jackson Rowe Breaks the ‘Blue Monday’ Myth on ‘Brew Monday’

16 January 2024

In a world that often rushes past, taking a moment to connect with those around us is a powerful act. Brew Monday, a concept introduced by the Samaritans, encourages us to break the myth of ‘Blue Monday’ and instead share a cuppa and a chat with the people around us.


Life moves at a rapid pace so taking the time to listen is a precious gift. Jackson Rowe’s Mental Health First Aider, Director Sandy Barnes encouraged us to reach out, connect, and savour the moments created over a cup of our favourite brew. Sandy reminded us to prioritise relationships, acknowledge challenges people might be facing and offer support, whether it’s a comforting cuppa, a strong coffee, or a glass of juice the shared experience is a symbol of unity, understanding and compassion.


Thank you Sandy.
