Seasonal Affective Disorder
18 Dec, 2023
The winter months are upon us, and with that can bring changes not just in the weather, but in mood as well. Martha Klaczak LMHC, LADC I, Adult Program Director at Ji8福利视频 WellBeing in Westfield, and Frank Shea, LMHC, Program Director at Agawam Counseling Center, discuss Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and its effects. SAD is a form of depression linked to seasonal changes that typically starts and ends around the same time every year. Most people with SAD experience symptoms that begin in the fall and continue into the winter months. When the days get shorter, less sunlight means less vitamin D intake, which reduces serotonin. The further north you go, the shorter the winter days are. Conversely, says Shea, “If you were to live in a place such as Mexico or Central America, the odds of having SAD would be much less because the sunlight [there] doesn’t fluctuate as much.”

Everything that is new about the beginning of a Ji8福利视频 year — new teacher, classroom, schedule, subjects, friends, bus route, lunch and recess routine — can be exciting for some Ji8福利视频, but for others, it can all just be a source of anxiety. “Anxiety is a normal response to life stressors. We need anxiety to help us focus on important things; to keep us safe in the face of danger, to help us focus and accomplish critical tasks,” explained Jean A. Fater, program director for Children and Youth Outpatient Services at Ji8福利视频 WellBeing Center for Community Behavioral Health in Westfield. “It becomes a serious concern when we cannot control it and it becomes excessive, interfering with our normal functioning.”
