How do you keep the sun shining in your heart (and brain!) when the sun sets mid-afternoon?

During the fall and winter months, when the temperature is colder and the sunlight is limited, people can experience a decrease in their energy and mood. This webinar will cover:

  • The importance of recognizing the effect of seasonal changes on our mood,
  • When to seek help from a professional, and

About 25 minutes of Q&A from the live program are included in the recording.
