In the first episode of its kind, Mental Health Matters goes to the streets! Real folks from the community ask how to deal with personal and sometimes stressful situations that arise during the holiday season. Host Shannon Eliot chats with BJ North, peer support expert, and Alan Stein, Marriage, Family, and Child Therapist, about how contributors can get through their holiday-induced stressors.
