Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you're like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody.

Don't brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the "winter blues" or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own. Learn simple steps you can take to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.

Please join Bert Harper, our visiting bi-weekly Mental Health Nurse along with Mental Health and Substance Use Psychiatrist Oxana Frizen and Registered Nurse Rebecca Miller for a discussion regarding Seasonal Affective Disorder, its symptoms and treatment.

Wednesday, December 3rd, 11:30 - 1pm
Manson's Hall Pioneer Room (cafe), by donation.
