“I see the holidays as a time for celebration and reflection, a time to cherish our families, friends, and people around us,” says Xiong Glen, Sacramento County Mental Health Treatment Center Medical Director. “To help maintain mental health wellness, find ways to give back and participate in your community.” We often experience joy when we give to others, even when the gift is as small and cost-free as a genuine compliment or demonstration of appreciation for another’s presence.The holiday season can be especially hard on the elderly and children, particularly those who are separated from family and loved ones. With the added social commitments and extra time demands that the holidays bring, it’s easy to lose track of routines and miss out spending quality time with children. “The holidays can be very exciting and fun for children but also difficult as daily routines are disrupted,” says Robert Horst, Sacramento County Child Adolescent Psychiatric Support Medical Director. “Keeping time schedules and rules consistent during the holidays can be very helpful in decreasing this stress.”Don’t let the stress of this season make the holidays something you dread. Take steps to prevent the stress and depression that can come during the holidays. With some positive thinking and a little planning, you can find peace and joy during the holiday season.
Sacramento County Mental Health Project Aims to Stop StigmaLook around you – at work, at church, at the grocery store, in the park, during your next family gathering. Someone you know is probably living with mental illness right now and you do not even know about it. Why? Because the shame and discrimination that surrounds mental illness can keep people from speaking out or seeking help.Emergency Medical Services Policies, Procedures and Protocols
