Recognizing Mental Health During the Holidays

It’s the happiest time of the year right?! Maybe not, the holidays can be hard on your mental health. Lack of time, financial pressure, gift giving, and family gatherings are just a few of the reasons our stress levels rise. Those already feeling alone or isolated may feel even more so. 40% of U.S. adults face a mental health or substance use challenge, making a complicated holiday season even more difficult for many people. Additionally, the National Alliance on Mental Illness noted that 64% of individuals living with a mental illness felt that their conditions worsened around the holidays.
