What is SAD?
 
 
SAD is a depressive illness caused by shortened daylight hours and a lack of sunlight
 
 
Being animals, we are all affected to some extent by changes in light and the seasons. Most of us like comfort food and tend to feel more lethargic in winter.
 
 
For about 21% of the UK population, some of the symptoms of SAD cause discomfort and a noticeable change in mood, but not serious suffering. This is called "Sub-syndromal SAD" or "Winter Blues".
 
 
For a further 8%, SAD is a much more serious illness which prevents normal function without appropriate treatment.
 
SAD is a complex illness with a wide range of symptoms
