Tips for Managing the Holiday Blues

namilou : November 20, 2018 11:14 am : Blog
By Laura Greenstein | Nov. 19, 2015

Many people can experience feelings of anxiety or depression during the holiday season. People who already live with a mental health condition should take extra care to tend to their overall health and wellness during this time.

Extra stress, unrealistic expectations or even sentimental memories that accompany the season can be a catalyst for the holiday blues. Some can be at risk for feelings of loneliness, sadness, fatigue, tension and a sense of loss.

A lot of seasonal factors can trigger the holiday blues such as, less sunlight, changes in your diet or routine, alcohol at parties, over-commercialization or the inability to be with friends or family. These are all factors that can seriously affect your mood.

However, there are certain things you can do to help avoid the holiday blues. Ken Duckworth, M.D., NAMI’s medical director, shares advice for managing your health—both mental and physical—during the holiday season in this video.

UPCOMING NAMI BASICS CLASSES

namilou : September 17, 2018 12:55 pm : NAMI Louisville Blog

Nami Louisville is thrilled to announce two upcoming FREE classes.  Our Basics class is an education program specifically for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents experiencing mental health challenges.

As a caregiver of a child or adolescent with a mental health condition, you face unique challenges:  social stigma, complex family dynamics, navigating the school system and unpredictable aspects of these conditions can be overwhelming.

NAMI basics provides you with skills, knowledge and a community of people who can relate to your experience.

You will learn from people like you, who get it and have been there.  Our trained peers who facilitate this class will guide you on how to better understand and support your child while maintaining your own well-being.

The next class begins on Thursday, November 8, 2018 and runs through December 20, 2018.  The class will meet at the NE YMCA at 9400 Mill Brook Road in Louisville, 40206 each Thursday night from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

Please call 502-588-2008 or email Martha.Theobald@namilouisville.org for more information
