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…
Sweet, don’t you think? Plenty of important info, and easy on the eyes. There’s actually a bit of copy accompanying the infographic, so I’m going to send you to Yellowbrick to catch it all.
Seasonal affective disorder, SAD, seasonal depression – call it what you’d like. But please make sure you understand what it is. ‘Cause when it comes to the mood disorders, no boo-boos allowed.
Questions regarding SAD, or other emotional/mental concerns? Consider a Chipur consultation.
