This timely report will elaborate on the little-understood condition called seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, in what's expected to be a tough winter. This disorder affects a lot of people in the northern and southern regions starting in September
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Sept. 21, 2022 - PRLog -- WordCraft Club with Self-Success Club are pleased to announce the publication of Understanding Seasonal Affective Disorder: Questions, Answers, Treatments And Self-Help. The report will help people prone to mood changes associated with depleted light exposure such as occurs in the fall and winter months in latitudes farther from the equator.

A recent report by says that 51 percent of medical students report symptoms of depression, and 67 percent express feelings of anxiety, something that has prompted medical schools to institute advanced measures for improving student wellness.

"One subtype of depression that is relatively common in those in their 20s is seasonal affective disorder (SAD)," the report says. "The condition is also known as major depressive disorder with a seasonal pattern. SAD is a form of depression that predominantly occurs in the fall and winter months and remits during the spring and summer."

During these months the sun rises later and sets earlier, which reduces one's exposure to natural light.

This depleted exposure to light results in neuropsychiatric changes associated with depressed mood, loss of pleasure, change in appetite, sleep disturbances, reduced energy, neurocognitive dysfunction, and even suicidal ideation or behavior."

These symptoms can significantly harm a student's ability to learn and to operate – and it's not just students that are at risk. SAD affects mostly women, and young people under the age of 20.

"The students most at risk are those who move to go to medical school in a new geographical area, oftentimes to a latitude farther from the equatorial belt."

Some of the treatments for the disorder include psychotherapy, anti-depressants, and bright light therapy.

Self-Success Club has published a comprehensive guide on Sad, which you can access here:
