National Depression Screening Day
The 21st annual National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) at Kent State University will be held on Friday, Oct. 9, on the 2nd floor of the Kent Student Center. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For those unable to attend an in-person screening, a free confidential online screening module is also available 24-hours per day throughout the year, and provides individuals with feedback, referrals, and resources upon completion.
As part of the free in-person screening, participants have the opportunity to complete a questionnaire which screens for depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder; and to speak with a clinician in the mental health field to review their results. If necessary, appropriate referrals can be made, and participants may also find information on depression and other mental health issues for themselves or for someone about whom they may be concerned.

Kent Campus: Psychological Services at (330) 672-2487 or either one of the co-coordinators, Dr. John Schell or Dr. Carrie Berta.
