We understand that it is a very difficult time of year for many people, and is likely especially tough this year due to the ongoing pandemic burnout, rising COVID cases and increased restrictions. We hope the resources in this list will offer some emotional support, guidance, as well as some sense of peace and hope during this holiday season.
Wishing everyone a very restful holiday season and great start to the new year!
