Christmas 2017 "To Do" :  Make it work for you 

Christmas is only a few short weeks away.  It will come around sooner than we think, but thinking about it is only the start.

What are your feelings about Christmas?
How are you planning to spend your day?
What can you do to make this event a gift both from you, and for you?

If Christmas is a really difficult time for you, what can be done to help make it a better experience?

This short survey is designed to get you thinking ... and hopefully will help to make this Christmas a day to remember, for many good reasons...

The results from this survey will be collected as anonymous data. You will be able to opt-in if you would like to have your comments accredited to you.

The information collected will be used to inform and prepare blog posts that will appear on Mpressions Australia. You will be able to check the blogs posts out here: https://mpressionsaustralia.com/

I hope to support people to and provide helpful self care suggestions for getting through what would otherwise be a very difficult period. 

SELF CARE NOTICE:
If this is a challenging topic for you, you may prefer to choose a time to thing about how you will answer. It is perfectly OK to set this aside to answer from home, or in a quiet space of your choosing.

Please make sure that you speak to someone if you are having difficulty and need some support. Here are a couple of suggestions for where you can go.  Support is available 24 hours, 7 days a week.

Keep trying until you get the help you need!
