The holidays are typically a time of joy. But for some, holiday stress can lead to low mood, sadness and depression.

To address this problem, Great River Mental Health is offering a free program about what depression is and various ways to address this disabling condition. Psychiatrist Francis Sanchez, M.D., will talk about how to identify symptoms and find ways to get help. He also will talk about new treatments and answer attendees’ questions.

The program is scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 11, in the Blackhawk Room at Great River Center for Rehabilitation, 1401 W. Agency Rd., West Burlington.

A light supper will be served. Registration is limited. To register, please call Great River Medical Center’s Corporate Education Department at (319) 768-4070.
