Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that has a seasonal pattern.

The episodes of depression occurs at the same time each year, usually during the winter.

As with other types of depression the two main symptoms of SAD are a low mood and a lack of interest in life. You may also be less active than normal and sleep more.

The exact cause of SAD isn’t fully understood, but it’s thought to be linked to reduced exposure to sunlight during the shorter days of the year.
