My social worker and well, most people who know me say I have likely got SAD as I am very depressed in the autumn and winter and only feel bright when there is sunlight. But I would like to know where it is you should go for an assessment. Do you start with your GP for a referral?

Hi When in Rome
yes definitely speak to your gp and ask for their advice.
Some people recommend light boxes to help with SAD, i cant get on with them though they give me a headache.
Your doctor can test for vitamin D deficiency too, this may be a factor.
