Seasonal Affective Disorder can be treated with the usual anti-depressants that are used for other depressive disorders. Where the usual anti-depressants don't work, thyroid hormones are also known to help. Photo-therapy (light therapy) is also known to be effective, especially with winter onset depression. Psychotherapy can help improve the depression in the long run.

A combination of these methods is usually employed, based on a person's symptoms. The treatment is usually customized for the individual needs.

Hope this helps.
