Covid-19: Dealing With Seasonal Affective Disorder

As we enter the winter months with colder weather, less daylight, and continued isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, uncertainty during this time can be especially triggering for those who are vulnerable to the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), often referred to as “winter blues” or seasonal depression, is a type of depression related to changes in the seasons. COVID-19 poses unique challenges for individuals who experience seasonal depression and anxiety. The uncertainty and social isolation, as well as changes to routines, relationships with others, and the work/home environments, can be especially triggering for those already vulnerable to the effects of SAD. During the winter months, amid a pandemic like COVID-19, it is especially important to attend to the mental well-being of ourselves and others. This session will help participants understand SAD and anxiety and provide strategies for regulating emotions and energy levels.

In support of our customers and their employees across the country, on Monday, January 18th, Tuesday, January 19th and Wednesday, January 20th, Homewood Health will be hosting a webinar focused on the unique challenges for individuals who experience SAD and anxiety:

COVID-19: Dealing with Seasonal Affective Disorder, hosted by Sandy Kriegish (English) and Gabrielle Provencher (French).

During this one-hour webinar, participants will increase awareness of seasonal depression and anxiety and the importance of being able to recognize symptoms and learn ways to determine if they or someone they know may be suffering from seasonal depression and/or anxiety. We will also provide management strategies, and tips to increase well-being and effectiveness during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
