Do the winter months and the holidays get you down more than you think they should? If so, you might have seasonal depression, also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.).

SAD is a mood disorder that happens every year at the same time. It generally starts in the fall or winter and ends in the spring or summer. There are biological and environmental causes that may lead to SAD. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you are not alone and our group is here to help:

  • Less energy
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Greater appetite
  • Increased desire to be alone
  • Greater need for sleep
  • Weight gain

Kristin Cardona-Coccia, a licensed clinical social worker from Capital Health – Behavioral Health Specialists, leads this eight-week group therapy program to help you manage symptoms to effectively cope with seasonal depression during this winter and holiday season.

SHIFT: Group Therapy for Adults Experiencing Depression

Thursdays, 2 - 3 p.m.
Location: Online via Zoom

SHIFT will teach you new, healthier ways of thinking, feeling and behaving while you gain new perspectives on how to manage your depression.

Group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Psychologists say, in fact, that group members are almost always surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be. Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other members of the group often help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge, and hold you accountable along the way.

Regularly talking and listening to others also helps you put your own problems in perspective. Oftentimes, you may feel like you are the only one struggling — but you’re not. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they’re going through, and realize you’re not alone.
