Are there any particular mental health issues that tend to crop up at post, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (winter blues)?

Winter blues is a possibility, indeed, as the winter lasts about 6 months, with very long nights. - Jun 16, 2017
SAD can be an issue with the dark winters, but I find the generalized concern about this to be over blown. It is darker for perhaps 2 hours more per day here that the midwest of the US and then quickly lightens back up to very long, well-lit days. If anything, you might struggle more with the long, light filled days. - Sep 7, 2016
