Secondopinion.org Addresses Depression, Mental Health and Anxiety Concerns Heightened During the Holidays
While the holidays represent a time of joy for many people; the sights, sounds, memories and occasional stresses of the season can cause or enhance feelings of depression, anxiety and mental stress. Confronting and managing these psychological challenges—as well as expanded information about hot-button topics such as autism and multiple sclerosis—is the December focus for the consumer information website secondopinion.org.
“The featured books and authors on the website this month present real world answers and understanding of the often difficult, inexplicable feelings of depression and anxiety that seem to trend higher during the holidays,” said Dr. Shawn R. Benzinger, founder of secondopinion.org and noted Indianapolis physician. “It can be an overwhelming time where we face tough memories or family situations, financial or emotional stress, even addiction issues that affect our mental health and general well being.”
Video or audio reviews from Dr. Benzinger accompany this month’s titles — chosen for their easy readability and honest, yet comprehensive, treatment of a variety of sensitive subjects. This month’s titles include Psychology for Dummies, Addiction and Recovery for Dummies, Anxiety and Depression Workbook for Dummies and more; and also include two books that speak to the hot-button topics of Multiple Sclerosis and Autism.
“The for Dummies series is the perfect gateway to understanding serious conditions and mental health issues in easy-to-understand, non-threatening language,” added Dr. Benzinger. “The challenges of addiction, anxiety, depression, and psychological aspects of life as well as those presented by neurological diseases like Autism and MS are best handled with an open mind and honest information.”
Each month, secondopinion.org seeks to truly inform consumers about special health topics of the month, and offers a searchable archive containing previous month’s subjects, articles and interview content. For more information, visit www.secondopinion.org.
SecondOpinion.org isn’t a web destination as much as it is an interactive web experience that helps people to meet their own unique requirements for health, well-being, and peace of mind. Whether interested in maintaining wellness in general, or seeking information about a specific condition or area of specialty, users will find frank, honest, and oftentimes revelatory information that will help them better participate in creating an individualized health care plan.
Secondopinion.org is the brainchild of noted Indianapolis specialist Dr. Shawn R. Benzinger, the founder and Director of the Indy Spinal Care Center. Dr. Benzinger has been practicing in Indianapolis for over 20 years and has specialized in Orthopedics with a focus in chronic pain.
