Free, confidential depression screenings will be offered by mental health professionals from West Texas Centers and Big Spring State Hospital today, October 11th, in Big Spring.

The screening will be held on the first floor of Scenic Mountain Medical Center, 1601 W. 11th Place, in Big Spring, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants may enter through the hospitals main entrance near the hospital cafeteria.

 

Screenings are free and are open to people of any age.

 

National Depression Screening Day is held each year in October to raise awareness and screen people for depression and related mood and anxiety disorders. West Texas Centers and Big Spring State Hospital mental health professionals will provide attendees with a short questionnaire and visit with each individual upon completion to review their answers.

Mental health professionals working at the screening will not diagnose depression but will suggest avenues participants can pursue following the screening.

 

Depression is a very common condition that affects more than 16 million Americans—almost 17 percent of the population—and more than 300 million around the world. Clinical depression is treatable through a variety of methods, including medication and psychotherapy or a combination of the two. 

 

Each attendee is given educational literature and the names and phone numbers of community resources.

 

West Texas Centers also operates a 24-hour mental health crisis hotline, 1-800-375-4357. The line is available for those who are in a crisis or need mental health services.
