Ray County Memorial Hospital’s Senior Life Solutions Program Provides Tips to Beat the Holiday Blues

The winter season is upon us, which for many means holiday celebrations filled with family, friends. This builds anticipation for those good times; however, for others this time of year can be a reminder of lost loved ones, lack of access to family traditions, or other changes that may bring about stress and anxiety. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, many people can experience feelings of anxiety or depression during the holiday season, and people who already live with a mental health condition should take extra care to tend to their overall health and wellness. A recent survey showed that 64% of people with a diagnosed mental illness report that the holidays make their symptoms worse.
