seasonal depressionThe bright light therapy helps a person not only to cope with seasonal depression, but is also of great benefit to patients suffering from serious mental disorders. The scientists from the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania primary proved that bright light helps combat winter depression, and their recent studies have also shown that such therapy is effective for the treatment of patients suffering from serious mental disorders. The research published in the medical journal Bipolar Disorders, show that bright light can treat bipolar affective disorder, previously called manic-depressive psychosis.
