The parties, food, gifts, and time with loved ones… it seems like the holidays are a happy, festive time for everyone, but that just isn’t the case.
The holidays can bring on a great deal of stress, loneliness, and anxiety. For those living with a mental health disorder, the holidays are even more challenging. Depending on the study you view, more than half of people and up to 70% with a diagnosed mental health disorder say the holidays make them feel worse.
How do you cope with challenging emotions during the holiday season? Allison Hauser, MA, RMHCI, has some advice as we move into the holiday season. Allison is a private practice therapist who specializes in treating depression and anxiety, the most common mental health disorders.
