Christmas with ASKWHO; Mental Health Support and Events in Dubai

The festive season has begun and while this is known as the most wonderful time of the year, some of us may be feeling a little low. It’s a tough time of year for many so it is more than natural to feel down, especially when you’re away from loved ones. 

However you are feeling this Christmas period, you are not alone. In fact, you’ll be surprised to know that many people around you are likely experiencing similar challenges. Here are some ways you can find support in Dubai this December…

Things to do in Dubai at Christmas

Sometimes holiday loneliness can stem from all of the festive activities happening around you. Keeping yourself busy and finding things to look forward to is a key part of starting to feel good again. So why not get involved and visit a few unmissable events in Dubai…

  • Hear your favourite festive songs performed live at the Dubai Opera’s ‘The Sound of Christmas’ event this year. Invite the art group to share the evening in this whimsical and picturesque concert hall.  
  • Enjoy a day of entertainment, attractions and a large variety of dining options including traditional meals at Habtoor Palace’s annual Winter Garden event. Reach out to our foodies group to find friends who can tag along.

Expressing your feelings 

Simply talking it out with friends or family is one of the best ways you can release some emotions and lift the weight off your shoulders. How would you feel if someone you cared about was struggling with the same feelings but keeping it all to themselves? 

We understand that it can be difficult to reach out about things like this, but just keep in mind if it was the other way around you would be more than happy to help. Meet friends in Dubai on ASKWHO for those times when you could do with a boost from socialising with friends.

Working through it together
