 Beyond Halloween and Thanksgiving are shorter days and darker nights of winter. Our daily routines of sleep, exercise, getting kiddoes to school and us to work on time are being tested. We have the holidays to look forward to -- the joy of keeping a fire in the fireplace, a lit candle, a cup of hot cocoa can warm us from the inside out, and at other times we may feel the need for some guidance to make it through. This season can be challenging for our community members impacted by mental health conditions, so here are links to resources provided by NAMI:
