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

Winter here is real. It is extremely cold, -45C at times. It's also dark in the winter. Nothing like Alaska, but the days are very short and very cold. - Sep 2020


Not really, even in winter the sun is out and skies are blue. Quite pretty and pleasant actually. - Aug 2020


Winter blues visits us here in Ulaanbaatar because the winter is so long. - Jul 2019


Well, we have about 6 months of bitter cold winter. So you have to make the effort to get out and exercise even if it's -20/-30F and the air is polluted. - Oct 2016
