Take Health Into Your Hands This Holiday Season
With the holidays approaching and especially in the challenging current environment, I've been thinking about how hard this time of year can be for some people. Although the holidays are a happy time for most, they can often emphasize the feeling of being isolated and alone for many. I especially think about young people and families in our inner cities, including immigrants that don't have the resources to cope.
So as part of my ongoing efforts to support the Children's Health Fund, we have put together an effort this holiday season to raise some funds and make sure young people and their families have access to doctors and mental health professionals. All kids need a safe place to get help if they are feeling down or struggling with depression.
I've spoken openly about my own struggles with anxiety in the past and would encourage everyone to do the same, mental health issues are real and help is available.
