Managing the Winter Blues
Indeed, while most of us experience some changes in our mood during the autumn and winter months, the impact and severity varies from person to person. For some the impact is mild and short lived, while others experience moderate symptoms of low mood. A significant number of people experience symptoms such that they meet clinical criteria for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a form of clinical depression that has a seasonal pattern of onset in the autumn or winter lasting until the spring. It is estimated that up to 6% of the UK population may have symptoms that would meet the threshold for a clinical diagnosis of SAD.
In this 60 minute webinar, participants will have the opportunity to:
- Develop an understanding of the biological origins of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

- Develop skills in self-care and self-compassion.
