About The Event
During fall and winter months, some people experience a unique type of depression called SAD, or seasonal affective disorder. Researchers believe that lack of exposure to sunlight may trigger it. This is because it generally begins when the days get shorter and tapers off as the days get longer in the spring.
There are things you can do to sidestep SAD, including getting active, spending time outdoors on sunny days and opening curtains to let the light in. At this Lunch & Learn, you’ll find out what causes SAD, its symptoms, the effect it can have on your health, what you can do to overcome it, and where to get help.
