The holidays can be a stressful time for families but an organization in the Bronx is trying to change that.

Rising Ground provides mental health services to families in the Bronx.  This year to help children and families manage their stress the organization is offering coping kits. The kits are packed with a string as a reminder to hold it together, a piece of candy to enjoy the sweeter things in life and an eraser to not dwell on mistakes. Christina Sodano is the director of the organization's Mental Health Clinic. She says the best way to spend the holidays is as a family, just doing the small things.

The organization is also throwing a Christmas celebration with Hot Cocoa for their families next week.
