Does SAD (seasonal affective disorder) make you sad? You’re not alone!

SAD is diagnosed four times more often in women than men, and younger adults have a higher risk of SAD than older adults. You or someone you know may have experienced these “winter blues.” Managing feelings and emotions through the long Vermont winters can be a big challenge, but it’s not impossible. A panel shares their expertise on this pervasive disorder and offers tips for how to navigate the winter blues. ​

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website:
