"If it's the season for comfort and joy, why do I feel so sad?"

If you’ve ever had this thought, you are not alone. For people struggling with depression, seasonal affective disorder, addiction, or a recent loss, holiday cheer can seem like a cruel joke. The rest of the world seems to be rejoicing while you’re struggling to get through the day. Every Christmas carol seems to mock your inability to share the joy, and festive gatherings only highlight your isolation. 

Enjoying Local Holiday Events

At our Education NIght, speaker Areyn Williams from Family Service of Northwest Ohio shared some awesome local holidy fun to enjoy!

The recent Asylum event at the Wood County Historical Center was a great success, including Mary De Young who spoke on the History of Mental Illness in America. We are happy to offer her latest book through our library, Madness: An American History of Mental Illness and Its Treatment. It is a fascinating book covering the last century of mental health treatment in America.
