‘Tis the season to be jolly —– or is it? The hussle and bustle that is allegedly a happy time of year between mid-November and the New Year can be quite depressing for many people.
Coping with and minimizing holiday/seasonal depresion is the subject of this SelfCounseling webpage.
The National Mental Health Association has a fact sheet entitled “Holiday Depression and Stress” that you may read over at Healthtouch Online.
MedicineNet also has information on this topic and also contains information and links about SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder, and about phototherapy.
