Friday 29 January – ‘Take 5’ to RETHINK your resilience: Seasonal Affective Disorder

The specific causes of S.A.D remains unknown; however, much research has spotlighted changes in your circadian rhythm, changes in your serotonin and melatonin levels as factors that may be a cause.

S.A.D is the type of depression that occurs as a result from a seasonal change. For the focus of this webinar, we will focus on Winter Seasonal Affective Disorder. Clinical Psychologist Dr Caroline Burrow  will discuss with us the symptoms of S.A.D and what treatments are available to those that suffer from S.A.D.
