The holidays are not always a Hallmark Card for everyone. Local counselors say they see a lot of anxiety and depression cases this time of year. Jane Meyers has been a counselor in Bend for 18 years. She says the shorter days, higher expectations and strained family relationships add together for a "perfect storm." 

And now the economy is one more factor: "People are dealing with economic pressures and that always comes together because of the holidays. And this year it's even worse because so many people in our community and really across the world are dealing with severe economic issues; and some people have the boss that lays them off just before Christmas. You always hear those stories of some people that this happens to." Meyers says depression can lead to suicide. So it's important to watch for warning signs. Some signs include: talking about suicide, no hope for the future, withdrawing from others and a sudden sense of calm.

Meyers was a guest this morning on KBND's "Your Town."
