In a consumer-focused piece, HealthDay (1/23, Preidt) reports on seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which can bring “on mood changes during fall and winter.” According to a news release from the American Psychiatric Association, “SAD goes beyond the ‘winter blues.’” SAD can “include feeling sad or depressed; loss of interest or pleasure in activities you once enjoyed; sleeping much more but not feeling rested; feeling worthless or guilty; and difficulty thinking, concentrating or making decisions.” People with SAD whose “depression is severe or” are experiencing “suicidal thoughts” should “immediately contact a” physician, “seek help at the closest emergency room, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255, the American Psychiatric Association advised.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
