October 10, 2019 is National Depression Screening Day
Nearly 40 million adults in the United States experience depression or anxiety. Depression can occur at any time, to anyone. Depression doesn’t always happen after sudden life events or hardships; sometimes symptoms can slowly build over time. Whether you’ve faced challenges with mental health before or not, it’s good to complete a screening once a year.
As with physical health conditions, early detection of symptoms is always best to ensure you can get treatment before things get to their worst.
Luckily, there are helpful free screening tools that can help you get assessed with only a few minutes out of your day, giving you peace of mind and confidence in taking the next steps to mental wellness.
