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.


All Kent State University Students have access to an online screening tool for those unable to attend an in-person screening or for those who attend a campus that may not have in-person screening opportunities available.  The online screening module is free, confidential, and also available 24-hours per day throughout the year, and provides individuals with feedback, referrals, and resources upon completion.


NDSD is coordinated by University Health Services, Psychological Services, and the Office of Health Promotion on the Kent Campus.  NDSD is co-sponsored by Counseling Services at the Ashtabula Campus, Counseling Services at the Geauga Campus, and Counseling Services at the Stark Campus.
