As the sun sets earlier across central Alabama, many people may experience a chemical change in the brain that can lead to seasonal depression. This time of year brings about a range of emotions, leading more individuals to seek treatment. Signs of seasonal depression include oversleeping, daytime fatigue, and overeating.
With the holiday season approaching, the hustle and bustle can also contribute to increased levels of depression. For some, it may be their first Thanksgiving without a loved one.
