Day 25

Happy Christmas to all from the whole team at Mental Health Ireland! We hope it is a a peaceful and enjoyable day for you. For some of us, this may not be the case. You can find a list of supports open today on the main Season’s Greetings page. Today we have messages from special guests, poetry, music, a Loving Kindness meditation (may come in handy later) and an exploration of resilience, the type each and every one of you showed this year.

A beautiful voice and a wonderfully generous soul, the talented Siobhan McAleese released a record in aid of Mental Health Ireland and The Pituitary Foundation Ireland during the year. Watch the stunning performance by Siobhan of Nella Fantasia below.

Teresa Keane reads ‘This Christmas’, a poem by Howard W. Hunter.

Take a mindful moment today by listening to this Loving Kindness meditation with Miffy Hoad. Whether it be from a competitive game of Cranium, a stirring of old emotions, or frayed nerves from a strange year, our frustrations with other people might rise up on Christmas day. Let Miffy help reground you so you can continue enjoying your day.
