'SAD Lights' available at O'Shaughnessy-Frey and Keffer libraries
Are short days getting you down? Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues, is a mood disorder in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter. Bright light therapy (15 to 30 minutes a day) has proven effective in relieving SAD symptoms.
O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center and the Charles J. Keffer Library both offer phototherapy lights to relieve Seasonal Affective Disorder. The SAD light in O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center is on level one at the north end of the reference room. At Keffer Library, ask the staff for location.
