Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) - Symptoms and causes

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you're like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.

This site provides information about SAD, including symptoms & causes as well as diagnosis and treatment.
