As a naturopthaic doctor in Portland I see many patients who suffer from seasonal affective disorder. One of the tools I use that is extremely effective for this type of depression is called 'neurofeedback'. It's a drug-free non-invasive brainwave biofeedback therapy. The brain learns how to change it's own activity and therefore reduces or eliminates the negative response to lack of sunlight. I wanted to comment because there is help out there besides going the medication route - which is often not very effective for many people.
