Depression and anxiety increase in fall 

Interview Dr. Ernesto L. Sarduy

Depression and anxiety increase in fall 

Learning To Live Magazine (LTLM) interviewed Dr. Ernesto L. Sarduy (ELS) of South Florida Psychiatry to address the topic of mental and emotional health.

LTLM: What are the health disorders that are most commonly seen during the fall?

ELS: Actually, what is very noticeable in the fall is an increase in depression, followed with anxiety. Clinical studies have shown that more people suffer from depression in the fall, partly because of the change in weather.

It should be clear that, even if a person has been feeling well throughout the year, there may be times or dates when he or she may feel depressed.

LTLM: What should be done in these cases?

ELS: To prevent a severe depressive episode, the best thing to do is to see a professional before it gets worse, remember that the earlier there is an intervention, the earlier there can be treatment. 

The role of mental health specialists is not only to medicate, but also to offer therapies to help patients. In our office, I guarantee that those symptoms can improve.

LTLM: What ages do you serve at the center?

ELS: We see people from adolescence to old age, although we are seeing quite a few young people with concentration problems, it is something that is very common.

LTLM: How can they be contacted?

ELS: On Instagram @southfloridapsychiatry, our website or phone 786 730 8014. South Florida Psychiatry is located at Town Center One at Dadeland, 8950 south west 74TH Court, suite 2201. Miami, FL 33156.

LTLM: What health insurances do you work with?

ELS: Aetna, AvMed, Cigna, Magellan, Medicare part B, Optum, Oscar, Oxford, now not all plans apply, but you can connect by phone if you would like to make an appointment with us.

LTLM: What do you specialize in?

ELS: We specialize in services for anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, bipolar, eating disorders, among others.

LTLM: Any recommendations you would like to leave with our followers and readers?

ELS: You have to go to the psychiatrist, just like you go to the doctor for an injury, it is the same with mental health and I think there is a mountain of excuses and stigmas, but I would like to clarify that it is the most normal thing.
