Website helps people cope with holiday season woes.

The holiday season can be a happy time of year, as family and friends gather to share warm memories and create new ones, but for some people, the holidays bring stress, anxiety, and feelings of depression. Coping with mood disorders, such as major depression and seasonal affective disorder (SAD), can be especially difficult during this time.

The American Psychological Association's public information Website, Healthy Minds, features information to help individuals and families cope with the holiday season. The site also includes information on appropriate holiday alcohol consumption, helping children cope with holiday stress, and managing seasonal affective disorder (SAD). In addition, the site has free brochures on depression, bipolar disorder, and SAD.
