2012 National Depression Screening Day
Come to National Depression Screening Day on Thursday, Oct. 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Kent State University. The event is being held on the second floor of the Kent Student Center and is open to all students, faculty and staff, as well as the larger Kent community.
As part of the free 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 talk to a clinician in the mental health field to review their results and discuss any concerns they may have. If necessary, appropriate referrals can be made, and participants also can pick up information on depression and other mental health issues for themselves or for someone they may be concerned about.
Students also can attend the event at Kent State University at Stark at the Herbert W. Hoover Foundation Counseling Center located on the lower level of the Campus Center between noon and 4 p.m. Students unable to attend the in-person screening event may consider accessing an anonymous online screening at www.mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/kent.
National Depression Screening Day is being co-sponsored by Kent State’s Psychological Services, University Health Services and Active Minds @ Kent State University. Food and other giveaways will be available. All are invited to participate.
