Light Therapy 

Due to our northern latitude, many Manitobans experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), while others experience a milder form of winter blues. SAD is a form of depression that occurs mostly during the fall and winter months, when days shorten and sunlight decreases. Light therapy, sitting near a specialized light each day, is one form of treatment.

RRC libraries have light therapy stations. Ask library staff to direct you to the light therapy options nearest you or inquire at library@rrc.ca.
