National Depression Screening Day Event on October 11, 2012

UWM is participating in National Depression Screening Day on October 11th in the union. If you’re feeling sad, angry, anxious, or stressed we encourage you to get a mental health check-up.  Depression, once recognized, is a treatable illness and this screening will help you identify it and walk you through your treatment options.  The screening offers:

  • An anonymous depression screening
  • Educational resources for participants to take home
  • A confidential interview with a mental health specialist to discuss the results of individual screenings
  • A list of local resources where treatment is available

You can receive a free screening that day from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. by signing up at the information table on the main floor of the UWM union, or by going directly to rooms 250 or 260, the private screening areas in the union. UWM mental health counselors will also be at the information table and available to answer questions.

This event is sponsored by the Norris Student Health Center.  For more information please contact the Norris Health Center at 229-5144.
