National Depression Screening Day is October 10!  Take your Depression Screening by using the link on Business Cards on Dining Service Tables!

Depression is a common and treatable mood disorder, and spreading awareness about the different ways those dealing with it can get help could save lives. National Depression Screening Day is October 10!  We will be placing business cards on the dining tables in Hamilton Commons that will have a link for individuals to take the screening tool.  According to statistics,

 

  • Depression affects more than 15 million American adults, or about 6.7 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year.
  • Only about half of Americans diagnosed with major depression in a given year receive treatment for it and one fifth receive treatment aligned with current practice guidelines.
  • Up to 80% of those who receive treatment for depression show an improvement in symptoms, usually within four to six weeks, of beginning treatment.

If you think you may have Depression, please contact Wilcox Medical, Counseling, and Wellness Center and schedule an appointment.  Call 989-463-7225 or stop by!
