The holidays bring much joy, but for some it’s a time of deep sadness. That’s why a local family is speaking out – sharing their mother’s struggle with depression — not to spread their sorrow, but to bring hope. Their hope? That you’ll spot the signs in your loved ones and get them the help they need.

The Kurzawski family has established a memorial fund in their mom’s honor, and they’ve asked us to post a list of resources for anyone wanting to learn more about depression, treatment and suicide prevention.
