While half of us are keen to send a get well card to a friend or relative when they have a physical illness, we're less certain about what's expected when the problem is one of mental health, according to a survey. Moonpig, who conducted the study, found just a fifth of British people would consider sending a card to someone struggling with mental health issues.

They also found that two thirds of those living with a mental health issue would welcome a gift, as it would make them feel cared for and less alone.

January can be a tough time, with bad weather and the excitement of Christmas long-forgotten, so the firm is encouraging us to think of those battling depression, anxiety and other mental health problems by launching a new range of cards and flowers in partnership with the charity Mind.
