Stressed Schoolboy with Head in HandsMany experts believe that January is one of the worst months of the year for depression. Perhaps January is difficult because the holidays have ended, and they weren’t as “perfect” as they should have been. Maybe January’s weather makes it harder to fight off the blues.
