BATON ROUGE - Workers at the Baton Rouge Crisis Intervention Center say despite the stress, pressure brought and other strong emotions brought on the holidays, they don't get more calls than usual during this time of year.

Medical experts say there's no data to support the idea of the "holiday blues" either, saying suicides actually go down in the winter and spike in the spring and fall.

For those without support, the crisis hotline is there with trained operators who take more then 25,000 anonymous calls each year.

To reach them call (225) 924-3900 or (800) 437-0303.
