National Depression Screening Day
Your mental well being is very important. National Depression Screening Day is on October 5 and is a week long collaboration where there is a 2 minute, anonymous and free, screening test available to everyone.
The test does not offer a diagnosis, but points out the presence or absence of depressive symptoms and offers a referral for further evaluation if needed. The objective is to get as many people as possible to take the screening test. By doing so, we'll help raise awareness of depression and help those who need, take the first step in getting there.
Take the test! (test is available from October 2nd until October 8th)
