2 December: Help with Seasonal Affective Disorder

Most of us look forward to Christmas but for people living with mental illness it can be a very challenging time of year. Many feel lonely and isolated from family and friends and others may be anxious about social situations or have worries about money problems or debt.

Each day leading up to Christmas we’re highlighting a different mental health resource from our site, which we hope will provide help and support not just for now, but throughout 2018 and beyond.

For 2 December we’re highlighting seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Some of us notice that we don't feel so good in the winter months, particularly if we live in a place where it gets dark earlier. The main symptoms are similar to depression but happen predominantly during winter. If you think you experience or know someone who experiences seasonal affective disorder, our information can help.
