The holiday season is meant to be a joyful time when family and friends get together to celebrate, share gratitude and delicious meals and make wonderful memories. They almost always look perfect on television and on social media newsfeeds, but the reality is that the holidays can be extremely stressful.
It’s the season of giving, so it isn’t uncommon for many of us to give back to others during this time of year. Whether you toss change in a collection bucket, give a toy to a child in need or make a large monetary donation, it turns out that being generous can be good for your health as well.
September 9-15 is National Suicide Prevention Week and provides a chance for us to pause, connect with each other and have candid and open conversations about mental health.
