Resilience and holiday mental health
With winter and the holiday season just around the corner, it’s a good time to be reminded that not everyone finds this time of year as joyful as others. In fact, we find that people typically experience the largest increase in stress and depressive symptoms between the months of November and January. Responsible wingmen should use all the resources at their disposal to maintain optimal physical and psychological mission readiness. If you or someone you know is experiencing depression or suicidal thoughts, give one of your helping agencies a call. You can reach the mental health clinic at 676-6452 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and by calling the command post at 676-9920 or 112 after hours. The chapel can be reached at 676-6441 or 676-9920 after hours. (U.S. Air Force graphic)
