Each month we are encouraging our bloggers to write about a themed topic. December's theme is mental health during the holiday season.

We advise before submitting your blog to save your entry on a Word document - in case any technical issues arise. If you are experiencing issues, please email your entry to fundraising@sane.org.uk.

You are also welcome to share your experiences on our Support Forum. Join/log in here.

Remember, if you're in need of support, our confidential services are always here.
