Holiday times can be some of the most challenging times for many of us. We are especially thankful for our family, those present and those gone to soon. For many, this may be the first Thanksgiving holiday without a loved one. Are you grieving the loss of a loved one and wondering how you will get through Thanksgiving this year? Are you feeling stress during the holidays? Know that our staff are here for you during this holiday season. Our behavioral health providers are here to help you through these difficult times. These providers along with your regular healthcare provider can work together as a team to determine a course of action for the best health care plan so you will be able to develop skills to effectively manage stress and grief in your daily life – not only through the holidays, but throughout the year.

As we enter the holiday season, we are very thankful for every one of our patients. We continue to be grateful to our staff of dedicated hardworking, and caring employees and our Board of Directors, a group of individuals from the community that volunteer their time and provide ongoing guidance and leadership. May blessings be yours this Thanksgiving and throughout the year.
