Show Notes

Well, we all made it through January and those cold mornings and early darkness can be grim. But some people really suffer in the winter to the point where they become clinically depressed. This is known as SAD or "Winter Depression" and in this Ep we explore what it is like and how people suffering can be helped.

This is "Why the long face?" in which we lift the lid on depression in a sometimes lighthearted and always non-judgemental way.

It is a conversation between two old friends, usually over a drink or two.

Paul has been a psychiatrist for 20 years and has done years of research into mood disorders and Oliver is a business consultant who has dealt with a lot of depression and its consequences in the workplace.

Cheers!
