‘Tis the season to be jolly! For many, the holiday season is a time to spread cheer, connect with family and friends, and celebrate togetherness, but for others, the holidays can be less cheerful and more stressful. Here are some tips on how to take care of your mental health during this holiday season.
If you or someone you know is struggling this holiday season, help is available. To find a behavioral health provider in your area visit https://dss.sd.gov/behavioralhealth/services.aspx or call the South Dakota Treatment Resource Hotline at 1-800-920-4343. Help can also be found by calling 211 or texting your zip code to 898211. Also check your health plan as you may have an Employee Assistance Program that can provide support.
Have a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year!
