We all certainly experience times of sadness or grief throughout the course of our lives. If we occasionally have a “blue” day or feel down in the dumps, that is normal. But when the down feelings last a long time and are more severe than just feeling blue, then we need to find out the underlying cause and get help. This workshop will discuss the differences between the everyday blues and depression, tips to help bounce back from occasional blues, and how to help others through these times.

Influenza (“flu”) is a contagious disease that spreads around the U.S. every winter, usually between the months of October and May. Flu is caused by the influenza virus, and can be spread by coughing, sneezing, and close contact. Symptoms come on suddenly and may last several days. They include: fever, chills, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, cough, headache, runny or stuffy nose. FLU VACCINE is our best protection from flu and its complications.
