Op-Ed: Mental Health

by Laura Friedman

For many of us, this holiday season will be filled with fun and quality time with our friends, family and neighbors. Against the backdrop of festive decorations and fattening food, many of us will have a break from the hustle and bustle of the year to enjoy and reflect on the parts of life that matter most. However, not all of us will be so fortunate.

For those dealing with challenges in life, the holidays can be exceptionally difficult. Among the many hardships and losses some struggle with this season, I wanted to take some time to focus on one in particular that affects far more people than most of us realize: mental health.
