Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is one of my favorite-special times of the year. It's a time when we get to have parties, buy our favorite candy, be generous in giving it away, dress up in fun costumes, and just…have a good time together. 

Sharing with others, being silly, being part of a community activity, being creative, are things that promote Good Mental Health. So I encourage you to celebrate now or anytime you get a chance. Have a party. Dress up. Be generous. Smile and enjoy yourself. 

Be intentional about initiating opportunities to get together with friends. It is an important tool in your mental health toolbox.
