Vilnius - Post Report Question and Answers

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

It does stay very dark in the winter and that can affect your mode. Remember to start taking vitamin D wayyyy before you move here. - Feb 2021

SAD does happen here. Long, cold, and dark winters (5 months). Lithuania has a high suicide rate and I think this has a lot to do with the climate. - Oct 2019

Seasonal Affective Disorder can be an issue here--definitely shorter, darker days in the winter. But it's a nice place to live, which helps counteract that (as does a SAD light). - Mar 2017

Winter is 3-4 months of cold and dark. Most people are fine with this, but possibly others would be more sensitive. - Mar 2017
