Seasonal Affective Disorder | SADly Misunderstood (You mean it can occur in the summer and include mania?)

Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal affective disorder, SAD, seasonal depression – all supposedly meaning the same thing. And all tossed-around freely this time of year. But do you know what SAD really is? It’s often misunderstood, and that’s a big no-no when it comes to the mood disorders. What say we get it right?

Okay, so I get all sorts of come-on’s from folks wanting me to feature their work, product, brilliance, scams, etc. on Chipur. Flattering, I suppose. However, the vast majority of the dogs don’t hunt.

I was contacted recently by a rep of Yellowbrick – a private, physician-owned and-operated psychiatric healthcare organization in Evanston, IL, serving emerging young adults. The guy wanted me to spread the word on a seasonal affective disorder infographic authored by Founder and Executive Medical Director Dr. Jesse Viner.

Know what? I liked it – a lot. And since I’ve been thinking about posting an article on SAD, I’m bringing you the infographic. By the way, no greasing of palms involved.

Enough from me – read and learn…
