PostSubject: Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)   Sat Apr 19, 2008 5:01 pm

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression which has a seasonal pattern. The most common form of SAD is also called 'winter depression' because symptoms are worst in the winter months. Symptoms tend to start from around September and are worse when the days are shortest (in December, January and February). By springtime, most people with SAD will improve and symptoms usually disappear.

Seasonal affective disorder can sometimes affect people in the summer rather than the winter, but this is rare and has different symptoms.

Around 1 in 50 people in the UK have SAD. The condition affects twice as many women than men. You can develop SAD at any age, but it is most common in people aged 18-30. Like any type of depression, SAD can be a difficult condition to live with. Symptoms can leave you feeling tired, lethargic, stressed and unhappy. However, there are a number of treatments and medications available that have been proven to be very effective in treating SAD.
