SAD Support Group 

"Don't be SAD!"  The holidays are over and the dreary winter days are settling in here in Pittsburgh.  Do you feel the Winter Blues overwhelming you?  Is SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) something you deal with every winter?  Even if the miseries have already started for you, they don't have to "color" your world from now till spring.  There are many techniques you can use to get back control of your life and your mood. 

These are typical symptoms of seasonal affective disorder.  Do any of the following sound familiar to you?

  • When the dark days of winter approach, do you feel sluggish and slow? Is it a struggle to get out of bed each morning?
  • Do you have difficulty focusing at work or in relationships, feel down in the dumps, or, worse still, get really depressed?
  • Does it get harder than ever to stick to a healthy diet and control your weight?  Do you crave carbohydrate-heavy foods?  

In this group participants will learn skills to: 

  • recognize SAD from its earliest appearance in late autumn, 
  • identify thought patterns that put you at risk for depression, 
  • lift your mood and improve your outlook,
  • develop a personal rewards system to hasten your progress.

Pam Fagelson, well experienced in dealing with Seasonal Affective Disorder BEFORE she moved to Pittsburgh, has a bagful of tricks and techniques to share with you.  She and Dr. Katie McCorkle, psychologist and founder of Balanced Heart™ Healing Center, will lead an 8-week support group teaching participants how to manage symptoms and have a better winter.  Results are amazingly quick and effective.  You CAN make this year better than last year!

The group will meet at 6:30 pm on Tuesday evenings from Jan. 14 to March 4 at Balanced Heart Healing Center, 12703-B Perry Highway, Wexford, PA.  Register here NOW. We want to help you THRIVE this winter!
