With a new survey that shows that a vast majority of Americans are familiar with depression and do not attach a stigma to seeking treatment for it from a therapist, National Depression Screening Day hopes to increase awareness of the risks of developing depression and where to find help if you do. On Thursday, October 10 more than 1,000 sites nationwide will offer free, anonymous assessments for common yet treatable mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, PTSD and a brief screening for adolescent depression that parents can take on behalf of their children.
You can check online to see if there is a anonymous screening event in your area or you can take this online Depression Symptom Test to see if you are at risk. National Depression Screening Day events are planned by Screening for Mental Health, Inc.
