When it feels like the world is turning against you - Turn2me.ie

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but for many of us this simply isn’t true.

 

At Turn2me, we know Christmas can be tough. Financial pressures, feuding families, loss and grief can all be magnified, not to mention the dark nights and the added guilt of feeling down at the happiest time of year.

 

Our professional mental health service has supported people experiencing mental health problems, for the past ten years.  This year, we wanted to do something to raise awareness of the services provided by Turn2me, and to highlight the supports that are available!

 

Turn2me Campaign

 

This Christmas, the award-winning Goosebump creative services agency based in Francis Street have donated their time to help us create a campaign that will resonate with anyone who has struggled at this time of year.

 

The messaging of the "When it feels like the world is turning against you - Turn2me.ie" campaign is to show that any of us can experience a mental health problem, at any time, and that support is out there! 

 

Turn2me provides free professional mental health support for everyone, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Yes, even Christmas day!

  • "I am the product of codependency. I know that now; I didn't before. However, my mind will not shut off with the constant wonderings of what the next step will be for my issue. (Marital/work problems). I'm a planner and not knowing is driving me just a bit insane. I don't want to have to succumb to alcohol, but at this point the meds do not take the edge off. I'm left to my own devices."

Now he does loads with the kids and even has his mum and dad involved, new partner and her grandson. I can’t cope with the feelings of bitterness and jealousy, not sure if I can do this...."

  • "Hello There, I Am New To This Group, And I Have Not Been A Member Of Any Group Like This Before. I Spend Most Nights On My Own, As My Wife Gives Me No Support Whatsoever. We Bicker With Each Other Often, And My Wife Of 13 Years Always Seems Angry, And Seems So Have A Very Short Fuse, So I Always Feel Like I Am In The Wrong. I Feel Sorry For All That She Has To Cope With, As I Have Many Ilnesses, And Am On Many Medications, Alongside 3 Types Of Anti-Depressannts. I Am Constantly Feeling Guilty, As We Were Only Together 2 Years Before I Became Ill And Had To Give Up Work, So More Guilty Feelings. Everything I Say To Her Seems To Stress Her And Annoy Her, Even Though I Often Ask Her If She Is Okay, With Which I Get A Short Sharp Reply. But She Never Asks Me How I Am Feeling, Which Is Most Days I Feel Tired And Suffer Much Pain. It Would Be Nice If Just Once She Would Ask Me How I Am, Or How I Am Feeling. I Guess She Doesn't Want To Know. Yet For All The Rubbish We Go Through, I Can't Leave Her, Because I Feel Sorry For Her, As She Doesn't Work Either, And Deep Down I Know She IS Only With Me For Financial Purposes. I'm Sorry to Rant On, But Most Nights I Feel So Lonely And Down"
