Educator, Student, and Community Wellness Through the Holiday Season

The break from school takes us out of our routines and can throw us into a packed (or quiet!) schedules, financial strain, and/or family gatherings. All of this can also lead to an increase in depression, anxiety, and/or substance misuse. You are not alone.
