Seasonal Affective Disorder
Feeling gloomy in winter is a common complaint, but some people are affected far more than others. People who experience affective disorder (SAD) often have feelings of sadness, hopelessness, anxiety, and sluggishness that they can’t shake. When any type of depression interferes with social and occupational functioning, take a few minutes to get an assessment. Start with your Employee Assistance Program to get the right source of help. Learn more about SAD from the National Institutes of Health.
