Last December I wrote about the winter blues and some solutions to battling what is sometimes called seasonal affective disorder, an actual medical condition.

Being that it's almost the end of August, in the Twin Ports we're going to get less daylight hours and the seasons as you know if you live here can change quickly.  That being the case, it's a great time to start thinking about ways to keep your mental health, sanity, or whatever you want to call it if the darker months have a negative impact on your wellbeing.

Just in time for the summer downturn into what is hopefully a long fall and not a quick change to winter, is a free webinar on SAD.  The event will be held on Thursday, September 1st at Noon.

Hosted by Jaymi Dormaier, a Licensed Master Social Worker, she'll talk about treatment options available to those in need.  Also discussed will be some great tips on how to help yourself if dealing with SAD and also helping others that are close to you.

While it is totally free to attend, they do request that you pre-register, and upon doing so will send you a link to the event.  You'll also receive a certificate of attendance if needed and a recording of the event and other information within 24 hours after.  Not a bad deal for the price of free, especially if winter is a tough time for you.  If you struggle with the winter blues, what are some things you do to help combat that?
