National Depression Screening Day

Clinical depression is a medical illness affecting more than 19 million American adults each year. Like screenings for physical illnesses, screenings for mental and emotional health are important for overall wellness. 

Each year, National Depression Screening Day is held on the first Thursday of October. In support, on Thursday, October 5, 2017, several U-M programs are offering faculty, staff, students and the community free in-person and online mental health screenings for depression. Screenings are a good way to find out if depression might be the cause of feelings like prolonged sadness, anxiety, irritability, loss of pleasure, hopelessness and worthlessness, and even physical pain.
