Depression and Anxiety Screening Information

Depression and anxiety affects many people and often goes untreated. It can make you feel both helpless and hopeless. You may be noticing you have no energy or your body physically hurts. Sometimes, you might not feel motivated to work, to see friends, or to do the activities you previously enjoyed. Trouble sleeping, irritability and sometimes even thoughts of wanting it all to end, are all symptoms of depression. In a given year, depressive disorders affect approximately 18.8 million American adults or about 9.5% of the U.S. population age 18 and older. However, due to stigma and other factors, fewer than half of those suffering actually seek treatment.

To help fight the stigma around depression and help identify the problem, Another Look at Healing, LLC is conducting Free National Depression Screening Days in October. As part of the program, participants will have the opportunity to complete brief, anonymous screenings for depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and postpartum depression. Participants will be able to learn about the symptoms of depression, and how to help a friend or family member who may be at risk. Participants will also have the option of talking to a health care professional about any concerns they may have and they will receive multiple referrals to local treatment services.

Screenings will be offered from 9am to 8pm, Monday through Saturday, by appointment during the month of October. For more information about the event or to set up an appointment, contact Amy L. Hooper at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
