DENVER, Dec. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For many of us, the holidays are a time of hectic activity, rushed errands
"The holidays remind many people of lost loved ones or reinforce their sense of loneliness, which can lead to depression," said Glenn Most, clinical psychologist and executive director of West Pines Behavioral Health. "But reaching out to our friends, neighbors, coworkers or family members who seem isolated is very important. It's an opportunity for them, and for you, to maintain a balanced state of mental health."
If you or someone you care about feels unhappy this time of year, communicating with others is an important way to help you both feel better. Here are a few things you can do:
"It's important to keep the lines of communication open all through the year, it just seems a little harder to do during the holiday season," Most said. "But making that time reminds the people we care about that they matter to us. It makes an immeasurable difference."
If you or another individual need immediate support, contact Colorado Crisis Services at 1.844.493.TALK(8255). The agency has trained counselors available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to work with persons in crisis and those supporting them.
