Session 183: Seasonal Depression During the Pandemic
The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves. As the days get shorter and the wind gets colder, you might be moving a little slower and feeling a little less motivated. And given the multiple stressors we’ve experienced this year, that’s not at all a surprise. Today we’re joined by Dr. Allycin Powell-Hicks to talk about seasonal affective disorder and how that might be heightening depressive symptoms you might have experienced in the past. Dr. Ally and I discussed tips for managing depressive symptoms, how we can tell if symptoms are something we should be concerned about, how to support ourselves in this very different holiday season, and some of the relationship challenges that have arisen during the pandemic and how to manage them.
