For people suffering from depression or anxiety, coping through the holiday season can be particularly tough.
Fred Stock is the president and CEO of Jewish Community Services in North Miami. He says there are many reasons for holiday depression and anxiety.
“You’re bombarded with all this messaging and parties, gifts. And for people who are lonely, or who are suffering from depression, who are isolated, this bombardment from the media exacerbates this feelings of loneliness and depressions,” Stock says.
