Supporting Your Mental Health • October 11 • 8:00-10:00 am & 4:00-6:00 pm
Getting screened for depression should be a regular part of your health care checkups much like getting your blood pressure checked or being screened for heart disease or diabetes. Screenings are the quickest and easiest way to spot the first signs of what could become a serious mental illness. It’s a commonly over-looked aspect of a person’s overall health and something people don’t readily talk about. We will have a table to screen your mood. Stop by and get your mood checked.
