NIMH Livestream Event on Seasonal Affective Disorder

NIMH Livestream Event on Seasonal Affective Disorder

Date/Time: Tue, October 26, 2021, 2:00–2:30 p.m. ET

Location: Virtual

While many people feel less happy at times during cold, gloomy days during the winter, these “winter blues” are usually temporary and do not interfere with a person’s functioning. In contrast, some people may start to feel consistently “down” when the days get shorter in the fall and winter and begin to feel better in the spring with its longer daylight hours. In some cases, these mood changes are more serious and, as with all types of depression, can affect how a person feels, thinks, and handles daily activities. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression characterized by its recurrent seasonal pattern, with symptoms lasting about four to five months per year.

NIMH is conducting a livestream event on SAD with Matthew Rudorfer, M.D., chief of the Adult Psychopharmacology, Somatic, and Integrated Treatment Research Program at NIMH. Dr. Rudorfer will discuss the signs, symptoms, treatments, and the latest research on SAD.

Watch the livestream event on NIMH’s Facebook or Twitter feeds. You must have either a Facebook or Twitter account to watch and ask questions.
