As the holiday season approaches, we understand that it can be a challenging time for many. December often brings a mix of emotions, and feelings of loneliness or stress can become more pronounced during this period.

At Talkspace, we want to ensure that our community has the necessary support and resources available. This month, our focus will be on addressing feelings of loneliness and navigating holiday-related stress.
