Borrow a Light Therapy Lamp

Light Therapy boxes, also called SAD lamps, use fluorescent lights to mimic the full-spectrum sunlight you would experience outside on a bright spring day. Lamps can be borrowed for 2 WEEKS at a time.

How Light Therapy Can Help:
Light therapy is a way to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and certain other conditions by exposure to artificial light. SAD is a type of depression that occurs at a certain time each year, usually in the fall or winter.

During light therapy, you sit or work near a device called a light therapy box. The box gives off bright light that mimics natural outdoor light.

Light therapy is thought to affect brain chemicals linked to mood and sleep, easing SAD symptoms. Using a light therapy box may also help with other types of depression, sleep disorders and other conditions.

Note: Full spectrum lights are not for everyone, such as those with glaucoma, cataracts or bipolar affective disorder. Consult your family physician before considering light therapy.
