This is the time of year when many people struggle with the “winter blues,” also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder, a term that most appropriately creates the acronym SAD.
Months of little daylight and being stuck indoors by the cold and wet can leave people feeling unsettled or even seriously depressed.
Science Cafe Concord will discuss the matter – how serious it is, how it can be recognized, how it can be avoided or treated – at its monthly discussion on Feb. 21.
Panelists Meghan Butcher, a psychology intern at Concord Hospital Family Healing; and Wayne Castro and Lynn Anne Palmer, clinicians at Riverbend Community Mental Health in Concord, will be there to answer your questions and offer advice.
As always, Science Cafe is free and open to all, and will be recorded by Concord TV for broadcast.
If you missed past Science Cafes, like January’s edition about electric cars, check out yourconcordtv.org/projects/science-cafe-concord to see them in their entirety.
The discussion starts at 6 p.m. upstairs in The Draft Sports Bar, 67 S. Main St.
March’s Science Cafe will focus on “silver tsunami” and demographics, while April’s is all about composting.
