85 in 100 feel that they are at their best in summer and worst in winter, 40 in 100 have winter blues, and 1 in 100 has winter depression. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), or winter depression, is a mood disorder related to the change in the seasons and lack of exposure to daylight. SAD is a rare example of a psychiatric disorder with a clear, identifiable biological cause.

This book helps to inform and update practice, and it is suitable for a wide range of professionals and health care settings. Readership: Psychiatrists, neurologists, clinical psychologists, nurses and other team members working in mental health care. All professionals, whether clinicians or researchers, in the field of medicine and neuroscience.
