ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The holidays can be a joyful time with family and friends, but it's also a stressful time.

A clinical officer at Aspire Behavioral Health said that if people feel stressed out, they shouldn't hesitate to ask for help with everything from errands to bringing dishes to holiday get-togethers.

"One of the things that's very important we can do is identify our support system. Who are our touchstones? Who can we reach out to, talk to, lean on at that time," said Dana Glass with Aspire.

Glass said that the holidays are a good time to check on friends and family who may be dealing with depression or other mental issues.
