Halloween! Friend or Foe

I love Halloween and spend all of September and October enjoying the fall weather, watching scary movies, and planning out my costume. I love spooky decorations and haunted houses. There are many people who are on the same page as me and genuinely love Halloween- but there are many who don't.

Over the next several weeks, I'm going to be writing blog posts solely focused on Halloween and how this time of year can pose mental health concerns for many folks. We'll be addressing issues such as trauma, anxiety, body image concerns, disordered eating, and seasonal depression. 

Next week, we'll be focusing on body image concerns specifically related to Halloween. I'm excited to begin writing these posts- stay tuned for more information!
