How not to get seasonal affective disorder: DR NORMAN ROSENTHAL - the pioneering psychiatrist who first discovered SAD - reveals how to avoid the blues this winter

It was back in the mid-1980s when I first suggested there was a specific type of depression that was triggered by the lack of light in winter. I was working at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland, in the US at the time. My thesis was met with a deal of scepticism in the medical community. Although some people supported this new diagnosis, others were dismissive contemptuous, even. Some colleagues even thought SAD was a joke.
Professionally, it was a little galling. More importantly, for a very long time, sufferers found it hard to get taken seriously. Thankfully, more than three decades on, things are different. SAD has won mainstream acceptance and treatment is available on the NHS. One in five Britons are believed to suffer to some extent.
