7. Why we all hate New Year (and why we shouldn’t.)

There’s no denying that New Year can be a difficult time for a lot of us. As a recovering ‘New Year Hater’ I’ve got my own short list of big reasons as to why this is. I’d like to use today’s episode to examine our discomfort around the season as a way of taking the edge off of it.

Welcome to Dark Coffee; the podcast that shines a light on our darkest times.

Join host Alice Lyons as she and her guests explore the topic of suicide ideation to help normalise the conversation around it.
