In brief: Seasonal affective

A light therapy box is a proven seasonal affective disorder treatment.
Light box therapy may be effective on its own. Or, light therapy may be most effective when it's combined with another seasonal affective disorder treatment such as an antidepressant medication or psychological counseling (psychotherapy). Light therapy boxes for seasonal affective disorder treatment are also known as light boxe.
