For many adults, enjoying an alcoholic beverage in social settings can be an enjoyable experience. But over time, excessive drinking may lead to a variety of physical and mental health issues. Help is available for managing alcohol use.
Managing Stress in the Moment
We all experience some stress in daily life. But chronic, unmanaged stress can lead to long-term health issues. Fortunately, there are many techniques to help calm the body and mind in moments of stress.

Accessing Mental Health Support—Virtually
As we enter the new year, many people are reflecting on the challenging events of 2020—and those that continue to define our daily lives. Some people’s ability to prepare for and effectively respond to the ongoing ups and downs of the times may be waning.
Caring for Your Mental Health this Holiday Season
This year has been a struggle for our social and emotional selves. It is natural to feel disheartened as events and plans we normally look forward to are happening virtually, postponed, or canceled entirely. From adopting remote work and distance learning to canceled vacations, weddings, and other family events, many people are grieving the loss of significant social interactions in their lives.
