#October Is National Depression and #MentalHealthScreening Month, & #ADHDAwareness Month, & So Much More!
National Depression Screening Day (October 8)- An estimated 40 million adults in the United States suffer from #anxiety or #depression.
The intent of National Depression Screening Day is to bring help and hope to those who suffer from depression. Mental Health America (#MHA) offers an online depression screening tool here. *However, depression screening is not a diagnosis of depression.
The tool is intended to help people who feel they may be affected by a depressive disorder start a conversation with their doctor or trusted individuals about their mental health. Other screening tests are available from the page as well.
