This week’s topic: How the holidays impact our mental health

Rates of anxiety and depression tend to rise during this time of year.

Dr. Thea Gallgher, clinical psychologist and assistant professor at NYU Langone Health,  spoke with the PIX11 Morning News to discuss what can be done to manage those feelings.
