We asked a few mental health community members having anxiety disorders to share their favorite movies for coping with Halloween season that will give you an excellent jolly, non-scary vibe.
1. “The Nightmare Before Christmas”
“I love watching ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas,’ and not just because if its catchy music. I love this movie because it recognizes that you can question who you are, but the questioning of yourself doesn’t mean you are no longer yourself. You’re still you, your perspectives, ideas and feelings have just changed, and that’s OK.” — Aurora W.
2. “Monsters Inc.”
“Not really a Halloween movie, but ‘Monsters Inc.’ It’s such a cute movie.” — Kadie A.
