Sadly, some depressions you cannot easily shake off.
One in five people in the UK experience depression and are not able to easily shrug off their problems. 'Blue Monday' is a chance for many people to overcome the more immediate side of life's downs, and use the opportunity to reflect on what makes us depressed, and what can be done to help and overcome the issues surrounding depression.
Blue Monday is the brainchild of Flexible Thinking Forum, a creativity consultancy which helps managers challenge their thinking to come up with new ideas and new ways of doing things. It is helped by PR and brand consultancy GREEN Communications.
