Get Screened at National Depression Screening Day, Oct. 6Posted Sep. 29, 2011
Come to National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) on Thursday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is being held on the second floor mezzanine of the Kent Student Center and is open to all students, faculty and staff, as well as the larger Kent community.
As part of the free screening, participants have the opportunity to complete a questionnaire which screens for depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder, and to talk to a clinician in the mental health field to review their results and discuss any concerns they may have. If necessary, appropriate referrals can be made, and participants also can pick up information on depression and other mental health issues for themselves or for someone they may be concerned about.
Students participating are eligible to enter a raffle for two $250 scholarships sponsored by University Health Services on the Kent Campus.
Students also can attend the event on the Stark Campus at the Herbert W. Hoover Foundation Counseling Center located on the lower level of the Campus Center.
NDSD is being co-sponsored by Kent State’s Psychological Services, University Health Services and Active Minds @ Kent State University. In order to promote this important outreach effort and to encourage student participation, food and other giveaways will be available. All are invited to participate.
For more information, contact Kent State’s Psychological Services at 330-672-2487 or either one of the co-coordinators, Dr. John Schell at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Carrie Berta at email@example.com.
