SUNPIPE helps combat SAD

Dr Laura Davidson, mental health barrister and trustee of MHRUK, said:

“It is estimated that one million working hours are lost each year due to SAD. The common unhealthy work culture where lunch breaks are frowned upon is a likely contributor to the increasing numbers of SAD sufferers. Employers and educational establishments need to take on board just how important natural light is to good mental health. They have a responsibility to ensure that work and study environments have sufficient windows to flood the building with as much natural light as possible. Darker areas must be well-lit to address the negative effects of light deprivation.”
