Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey discuss the very timely subject of Seasonal Affective Disorder (also called SAD), a type of depression that occurs at the same time every year. Symptoms start in the fall and may continue into the winter months, draining 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.  You will also learn that this disorder affects more women than men and more young than old.  SAD is not limited to the USA, although more prevalent in the North. Join us to discuss steps you can take to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year, even through this relentless winter many of us are experiencing!
