Winter is fully upon us. Hours of sunlight are at a minimum and the weather can often become gloomy. For people suffering from depression, it can be a difficult time of year, as many physical strategies – such as engaging in outdoor activities on warm, sunny days  –  for managing the mental illness are no longer available. The holidays bring additional layers of stress, fatigue, financial constraints, and conflict among family and friends. Even those who do not suffer from clinical depression can find themselves falling victim to headaches, excessive drinking, over-eating, and lack of sleep.

From counteracting the depressive effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder to devising mental challenges that boost the mood, Psych Central offers 12 Winter Depression Busters for good mental health this holiday season.

The holidays are no reason to avoid the challenges of mental illness.

The Villa Orlando and Pasadena Villa’s Smoky Mountain Lodge are adult intensive psychiatric residential treatment centers for clients with serious mental illnesses. We also provide other individualized therapy programs, step-down residential programs, and less intensive mental health services, such as Community Residential Homes, Supportive Housing, Day Treatment Programs and Life Skills training. Pasadena Villa’s Outpatient Center in Raleigh, North Carolina offers partial hospitalization (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (PHP). If you or someone you know may need mental health services, please complete our contact form or call us at 407-574-5190 for more information.
