In a general sense, I would think yes. However I'm sure summer must also be depressing for people whose personal circumstances don't allow them to fully enjoy summer.
I would think so since that brings the holidays which often causes depression. Think I read sometime about the lesser light also being a factor.
That is a complicated question. If you mean in northern climates where there is snow and such, then yes. People by their very nature like to be outside in the fresh air and open spaces. Being cooped up inside for long periods of time, while tolerable, can get monotonous and hard on the body. On the flip side, if you live further south where the cold is not a problem, then I would say depression isn't either.
Yes, there is seasonal depression that is triggered by shorter days and less sunlight. People in Northern areas tend to be more frequently affected as their days are substantially shorter in the winter. A treatment that has had positive results has been to install lights behind the curtains to make it appear as though it is still daylight outside. People cheered up a bit.
Yes take it from someone who has massive depression disorder.The cold weather monthes are very painful.It seems you ache twice as much.The sun warms from the outside in if you know what I mean.
Even if you never stick your head out the door the warmer days just seems to help some.No one want to be in the gray all the time.Sometimes the sun can burn through the gray in the summer.
I think it can do due to the evenings becoming darker much quicker especially if you live where i am...and with less sunlight and dull chilly days and nights it can put a dampner down on your mood especially if you're not as active.
Depression is psychological disorder and it is so common that it is referred to as the "common cold" of mental health ....and according to me the affect of depression is same in all the seasons....as it is a psychological thing and it doesn't matter whether it's summer or winter ....there are many depression tests that helps to identify the symptoms of depression.
So then, you completely discredit SAD as a depressive disorder?
it's my personal opinion on this topic and of course SAD is a depressive disorder
Clinical depression is most often caused by an imbalance in brain chemistry. So it is a psychological disorder with a physical root.
Borsia, will medication as well as counselling be successful in combating this, or is it not so simple as that?
Any really good shrink will tell you that it is a black art. If you are lucky meds alone can be the answer. For some therapy helps as well. For around 50% neither does much and therapy is all there is. It depends on how one reacts to meds.
Weather can be depressing especially if it is winter, we have five months of winter in CROATIA and the worst is when it rains, can't get out and that can be depressing if you let it be.
The holiday season also has the highest suicide rate. So people definitely feel depression in winter.
Clinical depression isn't seasonal for most but the added stresses of the holidays can compound problems for many.

One of the most compelling descriptions some have made about the nature of dreams is their homologous relationship to what's happening in waking life. I generally tend to believe that simply by virtue of having fervently studied something for more than a day or two. I will have nothing but dreams...

Who knows about this psychological disorder?Throughout the day, you feel all right, but after the sun goes down, you start to feel less and less "okay". By bedtime, the sadness, anxiety, and pain is so intense. It's hard to sleep, but when you finally do, you wake up the next morning...

Do you think it is weird to eat ice cream during Winter?When winter hits Dallas, only a few weeks, I like to eat ice cream outside, in the cold. Some of my friends find this weird. I do appreciate ice cream during summer, spring, and fall. (Okay, I just like the treat,...
