• Talk with someone who has been in your shoes
With any mental illness or emotional challenge, it is important to have honest meetings with your doctor and with others who are trying to help you. It is also vital to ask for help when you feel things just aren’t right. Don’t wait until you have reached a breaking point. Seek support today. Take charge of this holiday season by taking care of yourself first!
