Have you or someone you know ever experienced the following symptoms: feeling isolated, constantly fatigued,    consistently sad, trouble sleeping, lack of appetite/ increased appetite, weight loss/gain, increased irritable,          trouble concentrating. 
     These are common symptoms of depression.  Millions of people struggle with depression and most of us will either experience it or know someone who struggles with depression.  In an effort to normalize this issue and increase awareness, Counseling Services is sponsoring the National Depression Screening Day Information Table on Tuesday, October 12, from 10:00am-3:00pm in the Campus Life Center (2nd floor lobby).
     The event is open to all USC Upstate students.  Participants can learn more about depression by picking up brochures, completing a self assessment, taking an online survey or viewing an educational video.  Counselors will also be available to talk with participants.  Students participating will be entered in a free raffle for great prizes!
