SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DEPRESSION


Seasonal depression, winter blues and holiday stress is a two-hour workshop developed by People Supporting People a consumer advocacy group of mental health survivors. It is an interactive and educational workshop, which can be presented to a wide audience of participants, including a variety of age groups, the general public and mental health survivors. Seasonal Affective Disorder or Depression (SAD) affects a very large number of people in the fall and winter months when there is a lack of sunshine (vitamin D) in more northern climates or countries. In particular, this workshop will focus primarily on Christmas holiday stress, which often coincides with Seasonal Affective Depression (SAD) and a less severe form of sadness, often referred to as the "winter blues" for those who are prone to these conditions
