Can You Get Seasonal Depression in the Summer? Understanding Summertime SAD

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that typically occurs during the fall and winter months when there is less sunlight. However, some people may experience SAD during the summer months, which is known as summertime SAD.
