The holidays present a seasonal challenge for our mental health and wellbeing. UC Davis Health Chief Wellness Officer Peter Yellowlees says that the “holiday blues” are normal, but it’s important to recognize the signs and symptoms of a major episode of anxiety or depression. Yellowlees is also an expert on physician health and has written about suicide among physicians.
Yellowlees joins Insight to talk about common factors contributing to the holiday blues and ways to keep balanced during a joyous and stressful part of the year.
