February 25 Healthy Lifestyle focuses on a SAD subject: Seasonal Affective Disorder

The Healthy Lifestyle Series is addressing an important topic for this time of year at its February workshop: Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. “Stress and Seasonal Affective Disorder” will be presented by Lynne Noll, MS, RN, LBSW, on Monday, February 25, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. in the McKenzie Health System Dining Room, 120 Delaware Street, Sandusky. Pre-registration is required by calling 810-648-6117 or emailing publicrelations@mckenziehealth.org.

“February is the perfect time to talk about SAD,” reports Louise Blasius, LMSW, LPC, Director of Human Services at McKenzie Health System and Healthy Lifestyle Committee Chairperson. “Days are short and often sunless and gloomy, which can affect mental health. Lynne will talk about why this happens and what can be done to lessen the effects of not having enough light. She will also discuss the many ways stress can affect both our physical and mental health.”
