Three Tips To Improve Your Mental Health This Holiday Season
According to a recent Gallup Poll, Americans’ mental health is at a record low with a nine point decline in the last year. Since the rise of COVID-19 cases, there’s been an increase in the number of people in Florida getting approved for a medical marijuana ID card through the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use. To address these trends, MMERI is hosting a Conversations on Cannabis virtual forum with mental health professionals who will provide tips for dealing with anxiety, stress and depression during the holiday season as well as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
