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.

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.  

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 Stark Campus, Counseling Services at the Trumbull Campus, and Counseling & Wellness Services at the College of Podiatric Medicine.
