The holiday season can be a joyful time, but it can also bring about stress and exacerbate depressive thoughts. This is why it's crucial to prioritize your mental well-being during this time and develop resilience to navigate through the challenges that may arise.
One effective way to equip yourself with the necessary tools to combat stress and manage depressive thoughts during the holidays is by attending our upcoming Forest session on 'Stress Reduction and Combatting Depressive Thoughts: Techniques for Holiday Resilience.'
