National Depression Screening Day Is Thursday

Thursday is National Depression Screening Day (NDSD). From 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Counseling and Psychological Services will be on the second floor of Anderson Student Center to provide information and resources about NDSD.

Held annually during Mental Illness Awareness Week in October, NDSD is comprised of awareness events that include an optional screening component.

NDSD began as an effort to reach individuals across the nation with important mental health education and connect them with support services. Screening for Mental Health pioneered NDSD as the first voluntary mental health screening initiative in 1990.

Twenty-five years later, NDSD has expanded to thousands of colleges, community-based organizations and military installations providing the program to the public each year.
