Thursday, October 7 is National Depression Screening Day (NDSD)! NDSD is held annually in October during Mental Illness Awareness Week and raises awareness and screens people for depression and related mood and anxiety disorders.

One out of every ten Wisconsin residents will struggle with depression this year. Unfortunately, thousands of these individuals will battle depression alone and remain untreated. Untreated depression has far-reaching implications for all of us. The good news: with early screening, depression is easily diagnosed and very treatable. Mental Health America of Wisconsin offers free, confidential, and simple online screening on National Depression Screening Day as well as every day throughout the year. Screenings may be completed in either English or Spanish and are available for depression, generalized anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, bipolar disorder and alcohol use. Those who complete a screening online receive immediate feedback as well as information about resources for treatment.

Please help us publicize this important event by hanging the poster in your workplace, distributing the flyer to your staff and clients, post this information on your web site and/or forward this email to your contacts. To access the screening directly, please visit www.mhawisconsin.org/screening. Thank you!
