    Thank you very much for an excellent discussion on mental health during the holidays. It was also valuable to hear Dr.Lake’s presentation on depression, stress and coping with the pressure of being forced to stay joyful and happy when we are not always ready and able to do that.
    I learned a lot from this very important program!

      Greetings Althea,
      Thank you for your gracious comment on Dr. Lake’s interview.We know you are a long-time supporter of Magical Medical Tour and we are grateful. Our hope is to continue offering quality interviews and we count on people like yourself to keep us on the right path.

      I sent your comments to Dr. Lake and here is his response:

      Dear Ms. Waites, It is gratifying to hear that my comments about self-care during the holidays were helpful to you. As an integrative psychiatrist with over 20 years of clinical practice experience my perspective is that engaging in daily activities of self-care including exercise, good nutrition and adequate sleep are fundamentally important for wellness and also play important roles in managing symptoms of depression, anxiety and other common mental health problems. Wishing you a prosperous and healthy new year! Dr. Lake

      All good things,
      Glenn Wollman, MD
