Holiday Mental Health by The 21st published on 2018-11-20T19:57:44Z We’ve been talking a lot about Thanksgiving this week, in particular how we celebrate. The holidays can be a wonderful time to get together with family and friends. But, it can also be a stressful time. From all the travel to dealing with family disagreements to the pressure of hosting, to confronting feelings of isolation, especially for those who have lost loved ones, the holidays can be tough on maintaining good mental health in many ways. So how can you cope well? Dr. Kristina Brown joined us to share some mental health care tips needed for the holidays. She's the chair of the Couple and Family Therapy Department at Adler University, Chicago. Also joining us here in our Urbana studio was Pamela Wendt. Pamela is a licensed counselor and the owner of Creative Solutions Counseling Group in Champaign.
