Coping with the Holidays, a December 13th presentation

The holidays can be a stressful time just in living an ordinary family life.

For families with a loved one with a mental health condition, this time of year can add still more to an already stressful situation.

Mara Briere of Grow A Strong Family, Inc. will provide guidance for family members on how to make the holidays a more enjoyable time for all involved.
