How’s your mental health during winter? How about during the summer? Seasonal Affective Disorder, also known as SAD, is a depressive condition associated with seasonal changes and affects people during all times of the year. SAD can significantly influence your daily life and emotional state — especially if you’re a traveling healthcare worker. According to Mental Health America, about 5% of adults in the U.S. experience SAD every year, with women making up the majority. The main age of onset of seasonal depression is between 20 and 30, however, symptoms can appear earlier. Being a healthcare traveler means you can take assignments in new places every few weeks. This means you’re on the road quite a bit, putting you at a higher risk of SAD. Let’s dive in to learn: The SAD symptoms based on the season The causes of SAD for healthcare travelers How healthcare travelers can combat SAD
