I invite you, therefore, as you enter the New Year, to spare a thought about the loved one or colleague who was surprisingly quiet at the last get-together. Has there been a change in their functioning? Are they their usual selves? If not, seek them out a second time, to see whether they may need a mental health review. At worst, it could simply be a waste of your time. At best, it could help us all to have a happy New Year.
