National Depression Screening Day

10/4/2006:   How do you know if the families you work with are suffering from stress or something more serious, such as mental illness? What are the best ways to safeguard families from mental illness and boost resilience? You can get answers to these questions and access to resources through National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) on October 5. A mental health outreach, education, and screening program that offers special help to children and families, this special day provides both in-person and online screening options for four common mental health disorders: depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Visit the NDSD website to access resources, including a suicide risk questionnaire and a presentation entitled Suicide Prevention Programs Across the Lifecycle.
