Holiday Blues Survival Guide

Every year, we know that members of the LGBT community struggle through the holidays, so this year we’ve launched our Facebook Survival Guide to the Holidays. Some people struggle with finances, while others it’s the isolation. Many of us compare our lives to the images generated by the media, greeting cards and holiday songs, but seldom does the holiday live up to those expectations, for anyone.

This year we’ve asked Montrose Counseling Center employees to offer some suggestions to help you through the Holiday Blues, and we’re posting them on our Facebook Page. LIKE us today.

We’re also offering FREE wellness classes through the GLBT Cultural Center. Beginning Yoga, Meditation, Stress Management, Healthy Eating, and a Wellness Peer Group are some of the ways you can nurture yourself.

The blues come and go, but if you find yourself getting bogged down with depression, you don’t have to go through this time alone. Call us if you need to speak with someone at 713.529.0037. Gay & Lesbian Switchboard Houston also is available for crisis calls around the clock at 713.529.3211.
