OnPoint on WACH Fox: Coping with the holiday blues
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - On this week's edition of OnPoint on WACH Fox we look at helping people get through the holiday blues.
Mental health professionals estimate one in four people suffer holiday blues or holiday depression every year.
It's when the joy of the holiday season actually gets you down. The demand and pressure this time of the year to buy gifts, attend social gatherings and to go places can be a bit much.
Let's not forget the loved ones we lost who are no longer with us during this holiday season.
We talk with a local counselor about ways to help friends or family and talk about the signs you need to watch for when someone is coping with a difficult time.
