Hello Everyone, I hope your doing well. Thursday is National Depression Screening Day. I personally feel this is a very important day to help you or a loved one you know that may be suffering from depression. It is the most treatable mental illness there is. Often people find themselves just stuck and don't know how to get help. So please if you think you or a loved one is in need of help, take the time to do a screening. You may take a screening at home or find a local clinic with the links I provided below. Life is waiting, time to go live it :)
Thanks for visiting my blog,
Got the Blues? You Are Not Alone
One in 10 Americans is clinically depressed, but less than half are getting treated for it, according to a new survey.
National Depression Screening Day is October 7th
Ever feel like you are the only one who is sad in a world of happy people? Everyone experiences stress, sadness and anxiety from time to time – it's part of life. These feelings often happen when you a lose a job, children move away from home, during divorce, with a death in the family, or during retirement. But when changes in mood and behavior interfere with one’s ability to work, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities, it could be a sign of depression. National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) gives people the opportunity to take a free, anonymous questionnaire assessing their risk for mood and anxiety disorders and provides referral information for treatment.
