How does temperature affect mental health?


According to a recent study, there is an association between hotter temperatures and an increase both in the number of hospital visits for mental health reasons and in suicide rates. Medical News Today, 11/11/2019. (Also see Suicide Prevention)

That's an interesting study.  For me, Scleroderma makes the cold winter months quite a miserable time, but the feeling of wellbeing when the weather warms up is immense.


I guess many of us probably feel the same, but of course we are a bit different to the norm.


I know that  if it gets too warm, that can be uncomfortable, but not as bad as seeing your hands and feet go blue in the cold.
