Mental Health Screenings

Depression

Depression is more than a day of feeling low. Depression affects mood, thought, body and behavior. Students who experience depression may feel an oppressive sense of sadness, fatigue, guilt and hopelessness. They feel isolated, and lost. Today there are many effective treatments for depression. There is help and there is hope.

Anonymous and private screenings can be scheduled and referrals are made when appropriate. Classroom presentations, films and handouts are available. Upon request, the depression screening can be provided at anytime.

Anxiety

Most people experience feelings of being "stressed out" or anxious before an important event such as a big exam or a class speech. But many students face more that just "normal" stress; their lives are filled with overwhelming worrying and fear that is chronic and debilitating. Anxiety disorders are real and treatable medical illnesses.
