Coping with Mental Health around the Holidays: A Girl Like Me LIVE

Submitted on Dec 15, 2022


While the reasons are unclear, studies have shown that, in the general population, women are two times more likely to experience depression than men. Women living with HIV across the gender spectrum are even more likely than women in the general population to experience mental health challenges. The holiday season can be a tough time for many individuals, for many reasons, and having a community of support may prove to help cope with feelings of loneliness, isolation, and sadness.

Watch the 25th episode of A Girl Like Me LIVE co-hosted by Ci Ci Covin and community advisory board members Heather O'Connor and Masonia Traylor as we explore ways to cope with mental health around the holidays. You're not going to want to miss this amazing discussion with these amazing women.
