The holidays can be a season for family, friends, and festivities.

But this time also can bring stress, anxiety, and depression. Financial and gift-giving burdens rise. The calendar gets jammed with travel, social gatherings, or loneliness for those who can’t meet with friends and family.

This is bad news especially for Latino and other minority groups who already suffer higher rates of mental health issues than their peers.

On Twitter, let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2018, to share tips, stories, and resources to help Latino and all people manage and fortify their mental health and self-care this holiday season:
