Depression at Christmas

24th December 2009

A leading consultant from the Priory clinic has warned that the festive period is a difficult time for people suffering from depression.

Dr Jaya Gowrisunkur said people who have had deaths in the family or experienced divorce are more prone to depression, especially during the holiday season. But he says there are simple steps that could help alleviate depression such as avoid excessive drinking, join a local group if people are worried about being along, share feelings with others, participate in physical activity and do not be afraid to seek professional help.
