The festive period will be very different for everyone this year and it might feel overwhelming. It can be difficult to deal with extra stress and keep yourself well. Coronavirus restrictions and festive closures may mean the places where you get support at other times of the year are not available or have different opening hours.

This is why the Adult Support and Protection Committee in partnership with Fife Alcohol and Drug Partnership have created a handy guide to help people cope over the festive and winter periods.

The ‘Staying Safe and Keeping Well’ booklet contains useful tips and information which anyone in Fife can use when trying to cope with difficult times.  The booklet is another step by the Adult Support and Protection Committee in their continuing effort to raise awareness of support available in the Kingdom and ensure people stay safe and well, now and throughout the rest of the year.

Remember you are not on your own. There are many reasons some people need just a bit more of a helping hand, and we want you to know that in these uncertain times it’s ok to reach out for support.

The information is downloadable as a 36-page booklet from
